From the North /Ljubljana
Ljubljana airport is just 50 minutes, turn left out of the airport, then left again taking the A2 motorway towards LJUBLJANA, then after the tunnel, look for the turn off (right) towards POSTOJNA (also Koper & Italy) on the A1 motorway and follow the motorway for about 25 mins until you get to the POSTOJNA junction, we are 8 minutes away.
Turn right after exiting the motorway towards POSTOJNA and at the traffic lights turn left (towards the mountain of NANOS). The road is really pretty, after 5 mins you will see a sign to LANDOL and PREDJAMSKI GRAD, (PREDJAMA CASTLE), turn right and follow this beautiful road all the way to LANDOL. When in LANDOL turn left at the white sign for Lipizzaner Lodge and our car park is immediately on your left.
From the South / Italy Trieste
Trieste airport (in Italy) is just 45 minutes, follow motorway signs to SLOVENIA and LJUBLJANA, you have to pay a few Euros for Italian motorway tolls. Slow down at the Slovenian border and stop to buy a VIGNETTE sticker for Slovenian motorways, then keep following signs to LJUBLJANA until you meet the huge NANOS mountain... you will notice it! Now it's time to take the RAZDRTO exit (please note the toll gate is automatic, so drive up to it, stop and it will open)
Turn right after the motorway exit towards POSTOJNA and we are 5 mins from here. After you go through HRUSEVJE you will soon see a yellow sign to LANDOL and PREDJAMSKI GRAD, (PREDJAMA CASTLE), turn left and follow this beautiful road all the way to LANDOL. When in LANDOL turn left at the white sign for Lipizzaner Lodge and our car park is immediately on your left.
Don't forget to buy a vignette (motorway toll payment) sticker for your car when entering Slovenia, (if you hire a car in Slovenia, the vignette will be included, so don't worry). You have to display the sticker on the windscreen. They are not very expensive, 15 Euros for one week and 30 Euros for a month, which is very good value for driving on Slovenia's most excellent motorway network.
