    Hi Sandra,

    There are a couple different options for feasible connections from Ljubljana to Prague.

    The first takes about 11 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way; once in Maribor and then once in Vienna.

    The other takes about 10.5 hours in duration and involves 2 train changes along the way, once in Salzburg and then once in Linz.

    While the option via Salzburg and Linz is scenic, I'd definitely recommend going with the option via Maribor and Vienna. The train from Maribor to Vienna follows along a famed scenic stretch of railway called the Semmering Line. The Semmering is a stretch of railway between Bruck an der Mur/Mürzzuschlag and Gloggnitz/Wiener Neustadt on the route from Slovenia to Vienna.

    You would purchase tickets by searching a route under 'BOOK TRAIN TICKETS' on the homepage of our website, For a trip from Ljubljana to Prague, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, for the option via Maribor and Vienna, you would do one search from Ljubljana to Maribor, another search for connecting trains from Maribor to Vienna, and then another search for connecting trains from Vienna to Prague.

    Generally, these trains can only be booked once within 90 days of an intended departure date. Since your intended travel falls outside of this time frame, you would just enter an earlier date, some time within the next 90 days, to get an idea of the ticket costs and schedules in the meantime.

    Trains from Vienna to Prague are Railjet trains.
