Traffic Driving into Ljubljana

I am planning on visiting Ljubljana at the end of September and was wondering about the traffic situation on Friday afternoons or Saturday mornings. I was going to spend a night or two in Bled before finishing my short trip in Slovenia, but am worried about driving into the capital. Could anyone shed any light on the traffic at those times?

Also, is it worth it to stay in Bled for a night or two, instead of basing myself in Ljubljana and just doing a day trip? Your help is much appreciated! Thanks!

Well, if you like nature and relaxed atmosphere, better stay on Bled. Especialy, if you do not plan to take other day trips. If you plan to take some other trip in opposite direction, it's better to stay in Ljubljana.

It is more convenient to stay in Ljubljana. It takes about 45 minutes to get from Ljubljana to Bled and the road is excellent. Driving in Ljubljana is not problematic. It may be a challenge to find a free parking. However, there are plenty reasonably priced payable car parks available.

Hi,

I was a bit nervous doing the drive as I hate city driving abroad. However, Ljubljana was absolutely no problem, its well signposted and the roads were fairly quiet (we drove out of the city at rush hour on a Monday and it was fine). Also, I found drivers throughout Slovenia to be very courteous. Agree with above though, free parking is a bit of a problem but some hotels offer parking at an additional fee.

Hope this helps,

Deb.
