How safe is Ljubljana? How safe is Slovenia?

Ljubljana is probably one of the safest cities you`ll ever visit. The city is safe even at nightSlovenia ranks among 10 safest countries in the worldThe crime rate in Slovenia and in Ljubljana is negligible. 

Ljubljana has no slums and is safe to walk anywhere. Ljubljana holidays are safe holidays.


Probably  the bigest safety issue are fast riding cyclists which are quite numerous also in pedestrian zones. There are not many beggars in Ljubljana but if you meet one, no worries, they are harmless.

Pickpocketing has been noticed in the last years. Thefts are rare but it is smart to take basic precautions anyway.

Taxi drivers are mostly fair when it comes to prices but there have also been reports of rip-offs. Here are some trustworthy taxi companies in Ljubljana that we recommend.

Eventhough Ljubljanians are relatively tolerant when it comes to question of sexual orientation, you have to know, that Ljubljana is not like Berlin or Amsterdam yet and still needs some time to fully accept and understand the nature of homosexuality.

It is advised to keep your nature down a bit or visit some of the Ljubljana gay friendly areas, bars and clubs.

Like anywhere in the world thefts can happen but are very unlikely to.  It never hurts to take basic precautions like not being too showy of your possessions or leaving your valuables on a visible place in your car.
