Vienna to Ljubljana Transportation Options


I'd like to get advice on options to travel from Vienna to Ljubljana. There are no direct flights, and a bus ride can take 5-6 hours, I don't mind driving, but I'm traveling from one country to another and that is an expensive option. After Ljubljana I'm traveling down the Croatian coast, so I'm not returning to Austria.

Take the train. One direct departure per day if I'm not mistaken, and several more with a change somewhere.

We want to go from Ljubijana to Vienna. Does anyone know if there is a direct train in that direction? Thanks

We did the train. It was great. We had an unforced stop in Villach, which was a fun detour on our trip (something on the track).
