There are two kinds of public holidays in Slovenia - state holidays and work-free days. State holidays are those celebrated by the state. These include official functions and flying the national flag. The latter are actually Catholicreligious holidays, which are equivalent to any Sunday: companies and schools are closed, but there is no official celebration.
There are 11 state holidays and additional 4 work-free days in Slovenia.1 Two of them always fall on Sunday, thus, there are effectively at most 14 days of work-free days in Slovenia. From 1955 until May 2012, when the National Assembly of Slovenia passed the Public Finance Balance Act, 2 January was a work-free day too, thus there were effectively 15 work-free days.23
State holidays that are work-free are shown in pale green, while work-free days that are not state holidays (coinciding with Catholic religious holidays) are shown in dark green. Not work-free holidays are shown in white. Altogether, there are 15 work-free days in Slovenia.
State holiday, work-free. Formerly Liberation Front Day (dan Osvobodilne fronte), marks the establishment in 1941 of the Liberation Front to fight the German, Italian, Hungarian, and Croatian occupation of Slovenia.
