How to get from Airport to City Centre (Ljubljana)


I'll be traveling to Slovenia in June and I'm getting some conflicting information on the best way to
get from the airport to the city centre.

  1. Does anyone know the bus number that goes into the city?
  2. How close to the city centre will the bus drop me? (My hotel is .01 miles away from the castle)
  3. Are taxis the better option?

I'd love input from anyone!

Thanks so much

I found this link about transportation from the airport to the city. I did not look at it in depth but it looked like it may be helpful. We were in Ljubljana a few years ago and booked a shuttle van thru our hotel when we booked the hotel, the Pri Mraku.

I used MNJ transfers. I think I found them based on reviews on TripAdvisor but I'm not positive. I prepaid and the driver was waiting for me outside baggage claim. No muss no fuss, worked fine. Dropped us off right at the hotel. €29 two years ago.

There is only one bus that goes from the airport to Ljubljana. It goes to the main bus station, which is a 15-minute walk to the old town. If your hotel is that close to the castle, it's likely in the pedestrian zone, so a taxi will only be able to get you within a couple of blocks of the hotel, ditto for the shuttle transfer.

In any case, I second the recommendation for a shuttle transfer. It's much cheaper than a taxi at the airport and it will get you to your hotel (or close to it) faster than the bus, which takes the "scenic route".

EDIT: I just realised - 0.01 miles is 50 feet. No hotel is that close to the castle. Did you mean 0.1 miles or is there an error with the location?
