How to get to Jožef Stefan Institute

Navigating your way to the Jožef Stefan Institute from Ljubljana’s city center is straightforward and offers several convenient options to suit your preferences.

Walking from the city center: Ljubljana is a small and very walkable city, so if you decide to walk from the city center to the Institute, it will take you approximately 20 minutes.

By public transport: the only available public transport is the bus. If you decide to take the bus, we recommend using the Urbana mobile app available on Google Play Store and App Store (payments for the bus tickets can be made via the app).

From the city center, we recommend taking bus no. 1 (direction “Mestni log”, bus stop “Jadranska”) or bus no. 6 (direction “Dolgi most”) that stops on Tržaška Street, which is about 5-minute walk from the Institute.

By taxi.

Traveling to Ljubljana

Arriving at Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport

Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, also known as Brnik Airport, is the closest and most convenient gateway to the city. Since it’s located just about 26 kilometers northwest of Ljubljana, you can reach the city center by taxi, shuttle services, or public transportation, with travel times typically around 30 minutes depending on traffic conditions.

Alternative Airports

It’s important to note that Ljubljana’s airport has limited flight options. Some nearby international airports are listed below:

Trieste – Friuli Venezia Giulia Airport (Italy)
Approximately 120 kilometers west of Ljubljana, Trieste Airport offers another alternative for travelers. From here, you can catch a bus or train to Ljubljana, with the journey taking roughly 2 to 3 hours.

Zagreb Airport (Croatia)
Zagreb Airport, located around 140 kilometers southeast of Ljubljana, is another viable option. Ground transportation options to Ljubljana include buses, shuttles, and trains, with travel times averaging between 2 and 2.5 hours.

Venice Marco Polo Airport (Italy)
Venice Airport is situated approximately 230 kilometers west of Ljubljana. Though farther away, it’s an option worth considering due to the larger number of flights, including many low-cost airlines. From Venice, you can reach Ljubljana by bus, shuttle services, or train, with journeys taking about 2.5 to 4 hours depending on the mode of transportation.


Given Ljubljana’s reputation for safety and its hospitality, any choice of accommodation — be it hotels, hostels, or AirBnBs — is likely to be a pleasant one.

Opting for places either in the city center or closer to the venue would be the most convenient choice.

For those considering accommodation further from the city center or the venue in Ljubljana, it’s advisable to choose places near the public bus routes 1 and 6/6B for easy city access.
