In country::Slovenia


Transport

Find info on hitchhiking at Hitchwiki.

The city buses are most common way getting around the city and are very easy to blackride. When you enter the bus, just lay your wallet on the scanner and go forward. The driver won't really care about you but if he will say anything or yell after you, ignore him. The drivers usually don't speak English so even if you talk to him he won't understand you and leave you alone. This is also commonly practised by the locals.

Wild camping

  • Don't try putting up a tent in the city parks because you can get a fine from the police. You could try only with sleeping bag, though.

- It is possible to put a tent in the upside part of Tivoli park which is half an hour walking from the city centre. It is not so flat terrain, but if you search well you should find nice spots, clean, safe and quiet. Checked in September 2015

  • You could try sleeping at lawn in Metelkova, but be aware, there are some bars around so it will be noisy and at night and people go to pee to the lawn (where you sleep).
  • Under the main square bridge. (See #5)

Sleeping in the train cars

In the winter it's not hard to find homeless locals asking for food and money or selling magazines around the city. When you find one, try to establish a friendship (most of them are well educated so English is not a problem with them) with him/her and explain what you are doing. If you are lucky enough he/she will invite you to spend a night with other homeless locals in the warm train car.
