Ljubljana, the European Green Capital 2016, is celebrating its title with another addition to the city: a new “Urban” electric train. It will drive around an attractive circular trail, connecting the main city tourist attractions: the city centre, Ljubljana castle, Špica, Trnovo, Krakovo, Trg Francoske revolucije, Kongresni trg and Prešernov trg (trg means square in Slovene).
