The Youth Conference on Energy Security will take place at the
Faculty of Social Sciences in Ljubljana,
the vibrant capital of Slovenia.
Ljubljana is the politicial, cultural and economic centre of Slovenia, the seat of the Slovene government and home to the most important political, cultural and educational institutions. Though considered among the smaller capitals of Europe, Ljubljana pefectly combines a bursting life of a European metropolis with the coziness only a small town can offer. The city is also home to a large student population and a multitude of cultures, giving it a certain youthful, open and multicultural charm.
Each summer, Ljubljana is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world who come here to visit the city's beautiful historical centre under the castle hill, have a sip of good coffee or wine next to the Ljubljanica river, or enjoy the lively summer events and concerts. Its many parks offer an ideal retreat from the summer heat, and are a great place to spend time with friends and family. In 2014, the city also celebrates 2000 years of Emona, the Roman city that stood on the site of the present-day Ljubljana. The already exciting cultural programme will therefore be supplemented with additional events bringing to light the long and interesting history of the city and its surroundings.
Being in the geographical centre of Slovenia, Ljubljana is also the perfect starting point for anyone who wishes to explore the Adriatic coast, the Alps or any of the other numerous natural and cultural riches Slovenia has to offer.

The Jože Pučnik airport of Ljubljana is located approximately 25 kilometres outside of the city, at Brnik. We suggest taking a bus from the airport to the city centre as it should be cheaper than taking a taxi. Other major airports are relatively close to Ljubljana, including Klagenfurt and Graz in Austria, Trieste or Venice in Italy, or Zagreb in Croatia. We suggest that you also check these for the cheapest travel option.
Ljubljana's main railway station is well connected to the neighbouring countries. It is located near the city centre and from there, it is relatively easy to find a city bus to the conference venue. LPP city busses 6, 8 and 11 all take you to the Faculty of Social Sciences (bus stop: Mercator).
