Below you can see a full list of work-free public holidays in the Republic of Slovenia. There are names of holidays in Slovenian with English translation. Note that all public holidays are written lowercase in Slovenian, except those which derive from the personal names (Prešernov, Marijino). Also, months and days of the week are written lowercase in Slovenian, compared to capital letters in English.
