“Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the emerald-green Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city’s heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists. In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river; it almost feels like a nightly street party.” – Lonely Planet
Bussing is the best way to get around the Balkans. If you’re coming from nearby countries this is the way I’d suggest. When using Flixbus, note that sometimes the app will charge more than on the website since they know you’re on the go.
Balkan Viator, Bus Ticket 4 Me, Get By Bus (also has an app), Flixbus (also has an app) and Bus Croatia were the most helpful in Slovenia. If you want more information on the Ljubljana’s bus station itself you can check out their website HERE. It is within walking distance of old town and easily accessible to and from other parts of the city.
To get from the airport to the city center there is an airport bus that operates on the hour from 5:00-8:00 pm. There is also a public bus that will take much longer. If you’re arriving in a different city there are usually Flixbuses that pick up from the airport and will take you directly into the capital.
