Traffic and passenger controls remain at checkpoints at border crossings shared with neighbouring countries. Slovenian citizens coming from EU Member States or the Schengen area can also cross our border outside the control points.

All other persons can enter Slovenia only at specially designated border crossings. On these border crossings, waiting times in both directions also occasionally occur.

New road surface on the Gorenjska motorway between Naklo and Brezje (towards the Karavanke tunnel)

Restoring pavements is underway on this section. Special resurfacing technology is being used, which prevents wear of the carriageway, but due to a special procedure, some gravel remain on the carriageway.

Keep a safe distance and respect the speed limit, as otherwise this gravel can damage your vehicle.

Motorcyclists should be especially careful.
