CHEAP&EASY WAYS TO TRAVEL TO SLOVENIA

As a small country, Slovenia has only one international airport, 30 km from Ljubljana. So it’s most likely there are no cheap flights from your nearest airport to this lovely destination, host of HostelSkills #3 Conference.  Don’t be discouraged by your first airfare search! With some planning ahead there ARE easy and affordable ways to get there.

Being so small, all destinations in Slovenia are easily accessible from a number of international airports in neighboring countries. If you are aiming to get to Ljubljana, for example, pick one of the nearby Italian, Austrian or Croatian airports and you are only a short drive away from Slovenia’s capital. And if you are lucky to be transferring during day hours, you’re in for some really fascinating landscapes.

FUN FACT: Sometimes it’s almost as fast&easy to travel country to country as within a city. Trafalgar Square in London is 75 km away from Luton airport, and 66 km from Stansted. To reach Istanbul’s main Taksim Square from Sabiha Gokcen airport you have to travel continent to continent for 53 km.

Be creative in planning your trip to Slovenia!

How to get from the neighboring airports to Slovenia?

So, you landed. Whats’ next? There are numerous ways to get to Ljubljana from any of the mentioned airports. Trains, buses, airport shuttles. A quick Google search is sure to give you many options to choose from. Make the pick that suits you best.

EXTRA TIPS | Once you’re there

WHERE TO STAY? If you like staying in the center of events, exploring your destination on foot and having en-suite bathroom even in dormitories, Hostel 24 is an excellent choice. The staff will make you feel right at home, and offer assistance for exploring the city and surrounding areas.

 

WHAT TO SEE? Lake Bled! Sometimes all it takes is a picture.

WHAT TO DO? Just wander around Ljubljana discovering its many treasures, or for a more adventurous feel explore Slovenia’s capital with a special geolocation game that will introduce you to the secrets of the dragon brotherhood. Make time in your schedule to visit one the largest, and arguably most successful, urban squats in Europe – Metelkova mesto, the focal point of Slovenia’s alternative culture scene.

 

WHAT TO EAT? Slovenia has a unique position as crossroads of the Mediterranean, the Alpine world and Pannonian Basin, with strong influence from the Balkans. Its diverse cuisine reflects those influences making it an exquisite foodie destination. The food is seasonal, local and fresh. Try Prekmurska gibanica, a layered pastry with a number of fillings that include poppy seeds, cottage cheese, walnuts, apples, and cream. For a savory treat try Kranjska sausage and see if the Habsburg Emperor Franz-Josef was right to love it so much, and for a real local feel don’t miss trying zganci, a quintessentially Slovene dish, whose recipe might not sound inviting, but after you taste it you’ll realize just how wrong you were to dismiss it.

See you in Ljubljana at HostelSkills #3 Conference!
