Parking in Ljubljana
As with any European capital, finding a free (no cost) parking space during the week in the city centre, especially until late afternoon, can be a mission of sorts.
To find the most suitable place for your car, the details about prices, opening hours and number of spaces in each car park are all on the municipal parking web site. You will find them rated and priced according to their location which you can find on the map attached. Note that they are bigger and administratively separate to the street ones thus you are more likely to find an empty slot there. For this reason they have their own policy and prices.
Ljubljana parking system and rules
At street parking spaces you will find what are called parkomats. After inserting money and entering the time of use you will receive a receipt which you must put on display in your car. Be sure to have the exact amount of money prepared since no change is given. Paying is necessary on every working day until 7 pm and on Saturdays till 1 pm, however on Sundays and holidays parking is free. Failure to pay may result in you having to pay a fine which will be more expensive (approx. 20€).
What if your car is removed or the wheels are clamped?
If you park on a surface not intended for parking you may face having your wheels clamped or your car removed.
You can get your wheels unlocked by paying a fine at the Ljubljanska parkirisca in trznice d.o.o. company, at Kopitarjeva 2, 1000 Ljubljana (tel: +386 1 300 12 00).
If you do not park your car correctly and cannot find it later when returning do not panic, the city parking service has probably taken it away. You’ll find it at the Auto mobile fairgrounds at Cesta dveh cesarjev. Since this is a bit of a distance, city bus No. 1 is recommended. You pay the fine upon arrival here. (tel: +386 1 257 48 61, +386 51 358 832).
Management centre is open 24 hours and thus can help you at any time:

To avoid spoiling your vacation in this beautiful city and end up paying fines, we recommend respecting the rules of parking. Since Ljubljana is still one of the safest capitals in Europe, the chance of finding your car broken into or stolen is very small. But it is still recommended not to leave valuable things on display all the same.
