By air:

Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, located in Brnik near Ljubljana, is the country's main airport. Its distance from the capital being a little less than 26 kilometres, it can be reached within a 20-minute ride.

There are daily flights from Slovenia’s main international gateway, Ljubljana Jože Pučnik Airport, to a number of European cities, including flights operated by two low-cost airlines, EasyJet and Wizz Air, which fly to London, Paris and Brussels. Adria Airways, Slovenia’s sole carrier, has the most flights to Ljubljana.

Another possibility is to fly to one of the foreign airports in the neighbourhood (Trieste, Venice, Klagenfurt, Graz, Zagreb, Rijeka, Budapest) and access Slovenia from there by bus, train or rented car. Transport services from nearby airports to Slovenia are also offered by the low-cost carriers, such as GoOpti.

Having participated in the DSS three consecutive years I am truly able to say: the program organization is excellent, the lectures are very well designed and challenging, and the people, the food and the city are just amazing!

Participating in the Ljubljana Doctoral Summer School has been an enriching experience for my academic and personal development. Besides the beautiful city the intensive course work and also the network opportunities with like-minded PhD students from different countries have been very valuable.

I really enjoyed the Ljubljana Doctoral Summer School. Being enrolled in an excellent class on structural equation modelling with PhD from all over Europe did not only enhance my professional skills but also gave me the opportunity for interesting discussions about different cultures and PhD life in general.
