Sleeping in Airports

Ljubljana Airport Guide

Whether you have a layover, overnight sleepover or you are just quickly passing through, our Ljubljana Airport Guide is a great place to start planning your visit.  Here, you’ll find information on services and facilities available inside the airport – including details about airport lounges, WiFi, mobile charging points, lockers, 24-hour food options, nearby hotels, and everything in between.

This would’ve been closer to a 5-star airport sleeping experience had I been more prepared and brought a pillow/blanket. -corib
