First birthday of the electric train Urban

The electric train Urban made its first official trip on Wednesday, 25 April 2018. With the Urban electric train we have introduced an attractive circular tourist route connecting the most important landmarks in Ljubljana.

In one year it took as many as 42,000 passengers on board. The circular train ride in an attraction not to be missed when visiting Ljubljana. It includes the biggest city landmarks. The Urban train starts its circular route in the vicinity of the Town Hall, it goes to the Ljubljana Castle, then drives alongside the pleasant banks of the Ljubljanica River over the Trnovski pristan Embankment, through the contemporary centre of Ljubljana, past the Opera, the Modern Gallery and the Prešeren Square, returning to its starting point.

The wonderful exploration of Ljubljana can be combined with visits to the gallery, the castle and other sites, as passengers can get on or off the train at ten different stations. Let yourself be taken away, too.

Educational and fun ride across Ljubljana

You can board the train at different stops and combine your wonderful exploration of Ljubljana with visits to the gallery, the castle and other sites, or you can simply bathe in the sun next to the Ljubljanica River along the route while enjoying your favourite drink or stopping for lunch, and then take the train again. Or you can complete the whole circular ride on the train and learn a lot about Ljubljana. You can tailor your day to your liking.

A free seat is available at the starting station.

An audio guide is used for the presentation of all major city sites. It is available in ten languages (Slovene, English, German, Italian, Croatian, French, Spanish, Russian, Portuguese and Chinese). In Ljubljana we are co-creating the circular economy story that is why we are going to recycle components of worn-out earphones into raw materials for other products.
