Ljubljana Airport

Airport Car Rental

The capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana is also its unmistakable center of culture and commerce. However, thanks to the city’s central location, Ljubljana is not only a great destination in its own right, but can also be a good starting point for exploring the rest of the country. With that in mind, these are three of the best ideas for road trips in Slovenia:

  • Triglav National Park. One of the symbols of Slovenia, this large national park with the three-headed mountain at its center is just a 45-minute drive northwest of the capital. A hub for climbing, hiking, and other outdoor activities, it is the location of impressive mountain lakes, gorges, and waterfalls. Located on the edge of Triglav is Bled, one of the most scenic small towns in Europe.
  • Adriatic coast. Slovenia might only have a coastline of about 47km (29 miles), but the country has done its best to make the most of it. In addition to popular beaches, the area is home to charming port cities like Izola which are notable for their imperial past and well-preserved architecture. Just off the coast are a number of karst cave systems that make for a claustrophobic, but unforgettable experience.
  • Northeastern Slovenia. An unknown quantity for most foreign visitors and sometimes unjustly forgotten even by Slovenians themselves, the northeast is a secretly charming destination for those who know where to look. Highlights include historic castles and churches, natural attractions like Goričko Park, and bucolic vineyards which include the certifiably oldest vine in the world in the city of Maribor. 
  • Kamnik-Savinja Alps. This picturesque mountain range in Northern Slovenia represents the southeasternmost part of the Alps chain. The range is defined by deeply carved glacial valleys, plateaus, and craggy limestone mountains. Many destinations within the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, including Logar Valley, are only accessible by car.

Popular one-way rentals

  • Koper (106 km / 66 mi). Located about an hour’s drive southwest of the capital, Koper is Slovenia’s largest coastal city. During the summer months, its beautiful beaches attract thousands of lovers of the sun and the sea. The city is also home to a well-preserved old town and many historic landmarks.
  • Zagreb (169 km / 105 mi). The capital city of neighboring Croatia, Zagreb is a classy place to visit. It might not get the same amount of visitors as the Croatian beach destinations like Pula or Split, but the city is a true hub of culture, architecture, and innovation, and has plenty to see and do. If you want to visit Zagreb or any other destination outside Slovenia, you should ask your rental car provider in advance if they permit it.
  • Maribor (127 km / 79 mi). Located in the northeast part of the country near the borders with Austria and Hungary, Maribor is a historic and interesting place to visit. A large hub of viticulture, it boasts the officially oldest vine in the world and some interesting wine tours (worth taking even if you’re driving and not allowed to sample the wines).
  • Bled (54 km / 33 mi). Located on the eastern bank of the lake of the same, Bled has been called the most beautiful small city in the world. Surrounded by the beautiful Julian Alps and located near the Triglav National Park, Bled is a place of long valleys, impressive castles, and fairytale-like atmosphere.
  • Vienna (388 km / 241 mi). The capital city of Austria remains one of the most impressive cities in Europe. The hometown of many world-class composers, it is full of amazing architecture, art galleries, and also lots of more contemporary attractions.
  • Venice (262 km / 163 mi). Located just over the border in the northeastern corner of Italy, the famous city of channels is just a short three hour drive from Ljubljana. Venice is home to many world-famous landmarks, but the maze of its smaller side-streets and nearby islands like Burano and Lido can be just as fun to explore.

Slovenia is amazing! From swimming in beautiful Lake Bled to canyoning and kayaking in Bovec to playing at the sea in Piran to caves and castles, this country has everything you could ask for within a fairly short drive. Our rental car made the journey so enjoyable!

We picked up the Sixt car in Ljubljana and drove through Slovenia for 11 days. The views of lakes, snow-capped mountains, green fields and waterfalls are stunning, the food is excellent. But do not hire a large car if wanting to drive the Vrsic hairpin bends or any of their narrow panoramic roads. We then drove to Salzburg, Austria, which is picturesque and historic. The palaces and Mozart concerts are a must. You can also see Sound of Music filming areas (I was not interested in this). We then drove to Sopron for 3 days, and Tokaj for 4 days, (we stayed in nearby Tarcal) both in Hungary. Gorgeous towns, and Tokaj is a world-famous and pretty wine district. Then to Budapest for 8 days, where we first dropped off the Sixt rental car, as you don't need a car in Budapest. Another beautiful city, in my opinion more beautiful than Paris. There is much more to see and do in Budapest, than you can complete in 8 days !
