Prices in Slovenia


Prices in Slovenia are slightly lower than in other western countries, and they also vary depending on the specific region. It is known that in areas more eagerly visited by tourists will always be more expensive. In this case, it is definitely the vicinity of Lake Bled and the Triglav National Park, as well as the capital – Ljubljana and the city of Idrija. These are not big differences, but the prices here will be a dozen or so percent higher than in other places in Slovenia. So if someone has a limited budget, it is better to choose some other place as a base. After all, Slovenia is a relatively small country and it is easy to get to any place that interests us, even by car.

So what prices should be expected in Slovenia?

Accommodation prices in Slovenia

Unfortunately, out of all expenses during a trip to Slovenia, it is the cost of accommodation here that will be the highest, the closer to the city center or any attraction the more expensive it gets!

Average accommodation prices in Slovenia:

  • we will pay about 25 euro per night in a hostel
  • an overnight stay in a two-star hotel costs around 55 euros
  • for a night in a three-star hotel facility we have to pay around 70 euros
  • for a four-star hotel we have to spend at least 105 euros
  • for the most luxurious conditions, we will pay an average of 155 euros in a five-star hotel

If we want to take advantage of the accommodation offered by agritourism in Slovenia, we must prepare for the prices of 40 euros per person. Local vineyards offer similar accommodation costs. On the other hand, renting a private apartment here will cost around 30-40 euro per person. If we have a very limited budget, we can target the local campsites, which are of a high standard in Slovenia. Then we will pay from 11-12 euro to less than 20 euro for one person per night in a tent.

Prices for public transport and city transport in Slovenia

Prices for traveling around Slovenia by organized transport are not the cheapest – for example, a one-way ticket for public transport, covering one zone, costs 1.30 euro in Slovenia. Similar, but for two zones it costs about 1.70 euro. On the other hand, a single ticket entitling to travel by public transport with changes, in the area of ​​three zones, costs EUR 2.60. Against their background, the monthly pass for which you have to spend 37 euro is the best. Unfortunately, in the capital of Slovenia – Ljubljana, there are no daily or weekly tickets.

When it comes to intercity transport, there are trains and buses to choose from. In Slovenia, unlike many other European countries, the prices of coach and train tickets are more or less the same. This means that it does not matter whether we choose a train or a bus, we will pay a similar amount for the ticket. For example, if you choose the train from Ljubljana to Maribor, you will pay EUR 11.10 for a ticket and EUR 12.90 for a bus ride. However, a bus ticket from the capital of Slovenia to the airport will cost us here 4.70 euro.
