Holidays & Observances in Slovenia

Slovenia is a central European country on the Adriatic Sea. It is a former member of Yugoslavia and since independence has been the most economically successful of all former Yugoslavian countries. For most of the country’s history Christianity has dominated the population, but in recent years Slovenia has become more and more secular. This began during communist rule when religion was discouraged, but religious adherence has continued shrink since the end of communism. Despite the growing secularism, most Slovenians still celebrate important Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter regardless of faith.
