What makes the railway system different
Slovenia is the former territory of Yugoslavia. The condition of the trains here corresponds to the Western European level. Road transport competes with rail transport. Railroads and highways form a dense network connected to transport systems in neighboring states. Slovenia maintains contact with Italy, Austria, Croatia and Hungary.
Slovenia has two main highways located perpendicular to each other, as well as a network of minor roads. The most accessible means of transport is the bus. The bus service is cheap and guarantees a comfortable journey. Slovenia has a regular bus service, but there is no air transport. Highways are often congested, so trains are becoming more comfortable every day. Trains run between big cities. Information about the movement of trains can be found on the website of the Slovenian railways www.slo-zeleznice.si.
