Arriving to Ljubljana
Slovenia's road network is good and well connected to neighbouring countries.
To use Slovenia's modern highways you need to purchase a vignette. Vignettes are available at gas stations before the border (weekly: car 15EUR, motorbike 7,50EUR). Take care as you need to purchase one before entering Slovenia, controls are frequent (more about vignette).
Parking is easy and cheap at Festivalna dvorana. Grand Hotel Union is in very centre of Ljubljana.
Bus & TrainIf you are planning to travel by train, we recommend using the excellent Deutsche Bahn website which helps you plan trips from most parts of Europe. The main railway station and bus station in Ljubljana are located in the middle of the town, exactly between Grand Hotel Union and Festivalna dvorana.
