Accessible Travel

Slovenia is reasonably accessible for travellers with disabilities. Facilities include public telephones with amplifiers, pedestrian crossings with beepers, Braille on maps at bus stops, sloped pavements and ramps in government buildings, and reserved spaces in many car parks.

Bigger hotels will normally have at least one room designed for disabled guests (bathrooms big enough for a wheelchair user to turn around in, access door on bath tubs etc). Helpful organisations:

Paraplegics Association of Slovenia Produces a guide for members in Slovene only (although the English-language website is fairly complete).

Slovenian Association of Disabled Students Active group for those with special needs.
