I love train travel – and in Europe it’s generally much more convenient than in the US. If you’ve been to Italy or Austria you know you can get nearly anywhere by train. Slovenia’s train network is a bit less extensive; you can get basic places and between the major cities, but you may wind up traveling by bus or renting a car.
I was able to get some nice pictures from some of the regional trains, because you can open the windows! Both of the pictures below were taken from trains between Maribor, Ptuj, and Celje (eastern Slovenia):
Slovenia has some fast trains but also some basic regional, commuter trains, this one pretty empty on a Saturday afternoon between Maribor and Ptuj:
A lot of the Slovenian regional trains are decorated with graffiti – something you wouldn’t find tolerated in Italy:
Isn’t Maribor’s train station interesting?
