Introduction

Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia, formerly known as a (state) republic of Yugoslavia and an autonomous country since 1991. The heart of the city is the atmospheric Prešeren square, named after Slovenia's national poet whom has a statue on the square. The cityscape is dominated by the Ljubljanski Grad, the castle hill. The castle is beautifully restored. Ljubljana residents enjoy strolling along the remnants of other fortifications on the castle hill at night. That function as a pedestrian promenade was designed by architect Jože Plečnik, who also designed the Three Bridges (Tromostovje). The cafes, bars and restaurants along the river come alive at night.

Population

The city has a population of about 300,000.

Location

Ljubljana is centrally situated in the country, along the river Ljubljanica and at an altitude of almost 300 meters. On the eastern bank is old Ljubljana, west of the river is the modern part of town. The two parts are connected by bridges. Slovenia is bordered on the west by Italy, in the south and east by Croatia, in the northeast by Hungary and in the north by Austria. The country has a small opening to the sea: in the southwest it's on the Gulf of Venice.

Economy

Although industry still plays an important role in the local economy, the importance of the services industry is increasing. The industry consists mainly of pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals and nutrition. Ljubljana is also the country's financial center. Furthermore, construction and transport provide employment. More and more people discover the appeal of Ljubljana (and Slovenia), making tourism a booming sector.

Airports

Ljubljana airport lies 26 kilometers north of the city center. Officially the airport is called Jože Pučnik Airport, but the Slovenians still stubbornly call it Brnik Airport, after its location. The airport is easily accessible by rental car via the A2 highway (also E61). The exit to the airport is clearly indicated.

Public Transport

Ljubljana has good public transport, consisting of buses. On most lines the buses leave every 15 minutes and during rush hours even more often. On weekends and holidays buses run at night as well. You pay with an electronic ticket, which you can buy from vending machines, or kiosks of the tourist office.

Traffic and Parking

Ljubljana is not a very big town and therefore, traffic is not very busy. Even rush hours are relatively quiet, compared to most other European capitals. In the city center there is paid parking on the streets and most of the time it is not difficult to find a parking space. This is the cheapest option, but you are only allowed to park for two hours. There are also several parking garages, but the rates are much higher there.

Hotels

There is a good range of accommodations in the city. Tourists often stay in the cluster of hotels near the Three Bridges. For budget travelers, the Celica hostel is interesting, it is housed in a converted former military prison. Three kilometers north of the city center is a campsite, beautifully situated along the river Sava. If you would like to travel to Ljubljana in summer, we recommend you to book your accommodation well in advance.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
