Meet our Community of Expats in Ljubljana and Get Connected!

Pozdravljeni and welcome to Ljubljana! At InterNations,we offer a variety of resources for expats planning to relocate to Slovenia's capital city. Join our platform today to connect with our active expat community of recent and long-term residents of this attractive central European city. Our goal is to help you to sidestep the major hurdles and challenges of moving to a new country and gain a better understanding of the Slovene way of life. With this in mind, we encourage you to ask any questions you may have about life in Ljubljana — such as how to obtain health insurance, tips on finding employment in the city and how easy it is to get by without fluency in the Slovene language. Our members will be happy to offer their insights! A green and picturesque city with a temperate climate and excellent connections to Europe, Ljubljana may be one of Europe's smaller capitals, but it offers considerable charms to any expat looking to explore some of the continent's unsung treasures.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Prague or London.

Expat Life and the Economy in Ljubljana

Slovenia's distinctive history and geography lends its green and spacious capital a unique blend of sensibilities, with the cosmopolitan feel of a wealthy Western city rubbing shoulders with the remnants of the country's time as part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. For the Slovenes, the road to independence was relatively painless, and Ljubljana rapidly became a thriving hub of commerce and education. Today, over 64,000 students make the city their home, alongside a number of leading global and national organizations in key industries such as trade and export, car production and services. Expats will delight in the traffic-restricted city center, where pedestrians stroll along the banks and bridges of the Ljubljanica River and sip coffee and beer in the cafes and bars that populate its banks. The large population of young people means a busy and diverse nightlife, too, although the city has largely avoided becoming a Riga- or Prague-style stag party capital. With a welcoming populace, a high standard of living, and English very widely spoken by residents, Ljubljana is a city well worth getting to know.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Bangkok or Bali, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Attend Events in Ljubljana and Start Making Friends!

At InterNations, we strive to create a secure and positive user experience for all of our members — that's why we're the world's number one network for expats! Respect, ethical behavior, and good manners are the guiding principles for our community, and we ask all of our members to abide by them. Whatever your questions about living and working in Ljubljana, you should feel free to ask them. Our members can offer advice on local property law and the best places to buy or rent an apartment, employment opportunities or enrolling young children in one of Ljubljana's international schools. You can also use our community and in particular the InterNations Groups to pursue social activities, such as joining a gaming group or a sports team, attending a film screening or taking a dance class. Not sure where to get started? Why not attend one of the regular InterNations Official Events? We frequently rent space in some of the city's most welcoming venues to allow our members to get to know each other in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere.
