Choose rail travel for spectacular scenery

Slovenia  is a proud pioneer in sustainability, and train travel has emerged as a cornerstone of sustainable tourism. Crossing stunning Slovenia by rail offers a serene, comfortable, eco-friendly experience, allowing you to take in breathtaking scenery while minimizing your carbon footprint. Approximately 1,200 kilometers of railway lines crisscrossing the country ensure you’ll see much of Slovenia’s impressive tapestry of diverse landscapes. 


One standout line is the Bohinj railway, linking the idyllic Alpine valleys of Bohinj and the Soča River. See marvelous engineering achievements along this route, including the Bohinj tunnel, the longest in Slovenia, and the Solkan Bridge, a testament to architectural prowess. For a unique experience, hop aboard the motorail train traversing the Bohinjska Bistrica to Most na Soči route. Drive your vehicle onto the train and relish scenic variety as you traverse tunnels, galleries and bridges. 


Opt for a sustainable spa retreat by boarding the train in Ljubljana and journeying through the verdant Zasavje hills to the Savinja Valley. Alight in Laško for a rejuvenating soak at Thermana Laško, where train travelers enjoy exclusive discounts, or in Podčetrtek for Terme Olimia. 


Wine enthusiasts love the Vipava Valley wine train, a captivating ride through Slovenia’s renowned wine region. Savor exquisite local wines while gazing at panoramic vistas; stops in the charming villages of Ajdovščina and Dornberk punctuate your tour. 


Experience the beauty of Slovenia’s cycling trails with the Drava Cycling Route, a sustainable way to explore the country’s varying scenery. The bike train shuttles cyclists between Pliberk/Bleiburg and Maribor, seamlessly blending rail travel with outdoor adventure. 


Uncover historic gems by rail: discover the rich history of Brežice, its intricately painted Knights’ Hall and stunning views from the Water Tower.
