Slovenia recognizes two types of public holidays. These include state holidays and work-free days, which are regulated by the government.
State holidays generally include official functions involving a display of national flags on public and privately-owned buildings.
Work-free days include Catholic religious observances, usually held on Sundays. Although the majority of businesses are closed on Sundays, religious observances are generally regarded as celebrations.
According to current Slovenian labour laws, employees are entitled to 11 paid state holidays and four work-free days, for a total of 15 paid work-free days per calendar year.
