Ljubljana International Airport named after Jože Pučnik, earlier knows as Brnik, is the main air hub in Slovenia. It serves around 1,4 million people a year, many of whom head to the resorts of Portorož, Rogaška Slatina, Bled and Bled Lake, and Strunjan.

How to get from Ljubljana Airport to Ljubljana city center or the other way round

At night, you can travel to the city only by taxi or transfer.
