On 22nd September was European "No Car Day". Ljubljana downtown was closed for cars - only one day but what a joy to walk! Cars emit high percentage of greenhouse gases, so the European Commission has signed voluntary agreements with the automotive industry to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) to control greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector. Alternative way is railway transportation. First train drove to Ljubljana on September 16th, 1849. In a distance is a train with the panoramas along the composition. High resolution panoramas sticked on the train represent Slovenian landscapes East to West Slovenia.

Oh... yes - there is another alternative of tranportation - bikes !!! (I prefere footing...)

Dan brez avtomobila ? Nič hudega ... uporabi vlak...

22. septembra 2006 je bil 'Evropski dan brez avtomobila'. Center Ljubljane, okoli Prešernovega trga je bil zaprt za avtomobile - samo en dan in kako prijeten sprehod! Velik delež toplogrednih plinov prispevajo ravno avtomobili in motorji na notranje izgorevanje. Evropska komisija je dosegla sporazum z nekaterimi proizvajalci avtomobilov, ki temelji na prostovoljnem zmanjšanju deleža ogljikovega dioksida (CO2). Dobra alternativa avtomobilom za dostop v mesto je železnica. Prvi vlak je pripeljal v Ljubljano 16. septembra 1849. Na prostorskih slikah je tudi vlak na katerem so panorame, ki predstavljajo slovensko pokrajino od Lendavskih goric na vzhodu Slovenije do Slovenske Istre na zahodu. Aha... tu je se ene alternativa transporta - kolesa ... ali pešačenje!
