Can you tell me what day it is in pure Slovenian? This blog will guide you about all the possible ways to tell date and time in Slovenian language and talk about the time without any problem. Telling time in this language is a fun thing to do because there are countless options to choose from. So without further ado, let’s get started.
Time Zones In Slovenia
Slovenia follows a Central European Time (CET). The neighboring countries like Austria and Croatia etc., are also following the same timezone. Since technology has advanced a lot, there are different ways of setting the time of major cities in an accessible way. According to the current local time, the sun rises around 7:30 AM in the Slovenian Republic.
There is a short period in which Slovenia has to experience a time change, and all the clocks are shifted 1 hour ahead, which is called Daylight Saving Time. That will be the next time change. During this time change, the local time will not stay the same and shift an hour ahead. Therefore, from 27 March 2022 to 30 Oct 2022, Daylight Saving Time 2022, also referred to as DST, will be the standard time in Slovenia.
Setting Slovenian Time-zone
While staying in Slovenia, make sure that you are aware of the time zones in Slovenia. Using a time zone converter can be especially beneficial in such a case. Even if you are not in Slovenia, you can set the time zones of Ljubljana (capital city of Slovenia) on your phone to stay posted with the time difference.
The date order in Slovenia is day-month-year. So, for instance, Today’s date could be 31-01-2020 in Slovenian. Of course, this is followed in many parts of the world, but if you are from somewhere where the month-day-year (January 26, 2022) is followed, you need to be slightly mindful of these technicalities.
Another important element is that the Slovenians place a full stop with a space after the number. For example, 15. 7. 2022 or 15. Maj 2022. These are the only correct ways of writing time in Slovenian.
Let’s learn each element in the date order one by one.
You can use both Arabic numerals and Slovenian numbers in Slovenian to tell the date. When using a number in a date, “i” is added to the number. For instance, Dvajset (twenty) will become Dvajseti (twentieth).
Here is a table with first thirty one number for you to learn in Slovenian:

If you want to tell someone what day it is Today you can see “Danes je —-.” For instance, “Danes je Torek” will mean Today is Tuesday.
Months Of The Year
Let’s now learn how to say all the twelve months of a year in Slovenian:
Dvajseti Oktober will be the right way to say Twentieth October. You can simply write the number for the year, and the reader/listener will get the idea.
Moving on to the second part of this blog: telling time. The time is usually told using seconds, minutes, and hours. So let’s learn about each:
The word for second in Slovenian is sekundah. Therefore, you can use any number with sekundah to imply how many seconds.
The word for a minute in Slovenian is minuta, the plural of which is minut. Same as the seconds, you can add any number with it to tell about minutes. For instance, one minute will be eno minuto while two minutes will be dve minuti. Did you notice how the words changed? That is because of the Sklons in Slovenian.
The word for an hour in Slovenian is uro, the plural of which is sure. Therefore 1 hour will be 1 uro and two hours will be dve uri in the republic of Slovenia.
