Slovenia Transportations


Rail lines, emanating from Ljubljana, connect the capital to Kranj and Jesenice, Postojna and Novo Gorica, Celje and Maribor, and Nova Mesto before continuing to Austria, Italy and Croatia. As of 2006, there were some 1,229 km of railway tracks. With over 150 passenger stations and 140 freight stations, almost every town in Slovenia can be reached by train. Slovenian Railways uses high-speed trains and container transports.

In 2004, Slovenia had 20,155 km of roads, of which 18,381 km were paved, including 504 km of expressways. Slovenia has two expressways: one connects Ljubljana, Postojna, and Razdrto with the coastal region; the other links Ljubljana with Kranj and the Gorenjska region in the northwest and with the Karawanken tunnel to Austria.

The port of Koper was established in 1957 and opened to international trade in 1958. The port has since been much expanded, and in 2007 more than 15 million tonnes of cargo passed through it. making it the second biggest port in the North Eastern Adriatic. Further development and expansion of the port in Koper now depends largely on the construction of the third pier and on the opening of a second rail track between Koper and the Slovene rail network to ease the transport of goods from the port to the rest of Slovenia and Europe. This work still needs to be announced by the national government and local authorities, with whom the provision of theses new facilities largely rests.

There are small fishing harbours in Koper, Izola and Piran and three marinas in Koper, Izola and Lucija.

Slovenia had 14 airports in 2001, six of which had paved runways. In 2001, 689,600 passengers were carried on scheduled domestic and international flights.
