Top 5 things you need to know as a tourist

Compiled based

on FAQ we get asked
on the street

1. Drink tap water


2. Use free Internet


3. It’s free to pee

Unlike some capital cities where using public toilets costs money *cough* London *cough*, in Ljubljana public toilets are free. When you’re in the main centre you can find them under the Dragon Bridge, the butcher’s bridge (the one with the love locks) and the Three Bridges.


4. We use the euro

And we have been since 2007. The old Tolars are now about as useful last year’s snow. Although they still leave us a little sentimental. The 5000 SIT note featured the most prominent Slovene female painter Ivana Kobilica.


5. Ljubljana is safe

We have one of the lowest crime rates in the world. Even when stumbling home in the middle of the night, you can do so without the need to look over your shoulder.


6. You can drink alcohol outside


7. Keep our city clean!

We’ve been voted as the Greenest Capital in Europe in 2016, and we’d really like to keep it that way. The main centre is already traffic-free which makes a huge difference, and you can help us keep Ljubljana clean by clearing up after yourself and recycling...


8. Take a receipt

In order to clamp on tax evasion, the Government of Slovenia has introduced meassures to limit the so-called 'grey economy', This means everybody - from a sales person in a shop to a bartender - has to give you a receipt. And you are legally obliged to take it out of the shop or a bar and produce it if asked. So to avoid paying a €40 fine, take a recepit.


9. Don't jaywalk


10. Oh yeah, and by the way, we are not Slovakia

Some people get the two of us confused. We might have similar flags, and a similar sounding name, and even a few similar words but we’re much better… obviously ;)


Oops, that was 10! Sorry :)
