Parking for our guests

Dear guest, welcome to Ljubljana! The Old Quarter Residence is located in the strict city center, in a pedestrian-only zone. The old town is fantastic for walking and optimized for pedestrians, but it might get tricky when looking for central parking.

We've prepared the guide below based on our personal experience. All listed parking options are open 24/7, every day of the week, including bank holidays. We are doing our best to keep this up to date, but please do keep in mind that the prices are subject to constant change.

Please do let us know if some information is out of date!

Take care of your valuables!

While Ljubljana is a relatively safe city, it still is the most touristic city in the country, and petty crime does exist. We always strongly suggest not leaving your valuables in the car (bicycles, cameras, etc.). The outdoor parking options rarely have any security features, occasionally some entry/exit cameras. The parking garages tend to have more camera (CCTV) coverage.

NUK II

This unpaved (macadam) parking is close to the city center, so it can get full during peak times. It normally has high fluctuation, you can wait in the car queue and it’s likely you’ll get in within 15 minutes.

Trg OF

This unpaved (macadam) lot is the cheapest option so close to the city center, right next to the main train & bus station. It's not well kept so during rain it is full of large puddles. It comes with the disadvantage of no security features, and it is very dark during the night with no lights. Cash only.

Low cost, not well kept
