Slovenia on TrackTiny and progressively Slovenia is proud Undoubtedly one Eastern-European country That quickly got up to speed with its Western counterparts rail - as long as you stay on the main lines.
Nestled under the Julian Alps, just south of Austria and east of Italy , the Slovenian countryside is magnificent, so do not limit yourself to its thriving hubs blue or emerald coast. The Inland's scenery and cultural heritage is superb. And trains let you leisurely roam the country, while enjoying dazzling window views.
The major rail line links Ljubljana (the small-town friendly capital that's a perfect base for all your travels) and Maribor, the second-largest Slovenian city. Modern, tilting trains operate on this route, with travel time well below two hours. Other state-of-the-art services can be found towards the Croatian cities of Zagreb and Pula. Domestic trains offer free seating, I simply hop on board with a ticket or a rail pass. There are buffet cars on trains long distances, but no domestic night trains. And, first class is definitely worth the extra.
Local or short distance services do not operate under the same standards, but are still a good choice from Ljubljana to the healing climate of Lake Bled (or just 16 miles further, the gorgeously blue Lake Bohinj). Or, take the train to Jesenice and enjoy a modest mountain hike.
Also Ljubljana is well connected to neighboring capitals with direct services to Zurich , Vienna , Venice , Zagreb, Prague , Budapest , and Munich . Some Of These international services require a reservation That You can purchase locally. You may want to Consider traveling with a pass, or just buy individual tickets here at Rail Europe.
