Ljubljana’s electric-powered vehicles referred to as Kavalirs (Gentle Helpers) are a free city centre public transport option friendly both to people and the environment. Kavalirs, mainly intended for the transport of the elderly, mobility-impaired people, and visitors, run around the pedestrianized historical city centre at a speed slow enough to allow you to hail them anywhere on the street. Telephone ordering is also an option. The Kavalir fleet currently consists of four vehicles, two of them open-sided and two glazed and heated in winter time. Friendly Kavalir drivers will take you anywhere within the city centre pedestrian zone. The vehicles, moving at a speed of up to 25 kilometres per hour, can carry five passengers. The two open-sided ‘summer Kavalirs’ run in the...


The decision to name Ljubljana the European Green Capital 2016 was based on the fact that of all the nominees, Ljubljana had made the largest number of changes in the direction of environmentally-friendly and sustainable development in the shortest period of time, precisely from 2007, when the Vision 2025 sustainability strategy was adopted, to 2014.

More and more public city buses in Ljubljana are fuelled by methane in order to achieve reduction in CO2 emissions. Electric-powered vehicles called Kavali...

Top Things to do in Winter

We’ll be honest and say we much prefer the long, hot days of summer to the months when we’re wrapped in many layers and seeing darkness at what feels like mid-day. That said, this year we’re determined to make the most of the winter months, so we’re sure to hit March feeling good. Happy December For a start, we’ll make full use of Happy December (Veseli December), going downtown to see the lights and get something warm to eat and drink from the stalls. People travel for miles to enjoy the scenes here, and a bag of chestnuts and cup of mulled wine while walking around, or sitting under a blanket at a café, is one of the real treats of the season. One thing to be careful of: ordering hot chocolate (vroča čokoláda) will get you a cup of hot, chocolate pudding, so go for cocoa if that’s what y...
