Date And Time In Slovenian: #1 Easy Guide

Last updated on February 8th, 2024 at 12:41 am

Can you tell me what day it is in Slovenian? This blog will guide you through all the possible ways to tell the date and time in Slovenian language and talk about the time without any problem.

Telling the date and time in Slovenian language is a fun thing to do because there are countless options to choose from. So without further ado, let’s learn Slovenian!

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 31 March 2024 to 27 Oct 2022, Daylight Saving Time 2024, also referred to as DST, will be the standard time in Slovenia.

Setting Slovenian Timezone

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.

Telling The Date And Time In Slovenian

The date order in Slovenia is day-month-year. So, for instance, Today’s date could be 08-02-2024 in Slovenian. Of course, this is followed in many parts of the world, but if you are from somewhere where the month-day-year (February 08, 2024) 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. 2024 or 15. Maj 2024. These are the only correct ways of writing the date and time in Slovenian.

Let’s learn each element in the date order one by one.

Date

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).

Seconds

Minutes

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.

Hours
