The key things worth knowing about the main railway station in Slovenia.
The main station in Ljubljana has a convenient location - it's only a 7 - 15 minute walk from the heart of the city along the street opposite the station, look out for the statue of a man on horseback and the start of the walking route is through the gardens on the other side of it.
Ljubljana station is also beautiful, but what can be a tad confusing is that it is a station of two parts, both of which are accessed through the main terminal building.
The international trains from and to Ljubljana typically use tirs (tracks/platforms) 8-12) and the IC trains to and from Maribor typically use tirs 6 or 7.
So when departing by international train it's a good idea to be at Ljubljana station around 15 mins prior to departure, if you already have a ticket and increase this to 45 mins if you need to buy a ticket prior to departure.
Accessing the trains, which use the more distant part of the station, from the station entrance, will take around 5 mins, but it can be useful to also allow time to check the departure info with station staff.
