Students in Slovenian schools have five rest periods during the school year:

  1. Autumn vacation.
  2. New Year holidays.
  3. The winter vacation.
  4. May Day holidays (analogous to Easter holidays).
  5. Summer holidays.

The school holiday schedule in Slovenia 2024-2025 is the same for the entire country, but there is one exception. Winter holidays last one week and are held in two periods. Further in the article we have indicated in which regions and municipalities one or another option is in effect.

IMPORTANT! As a rule, school holidays in Slovenian educational institutions start on Monday and end on Friday. Their dates are published in this format on the website of the state administration. But in fact, they last longer, as they include Saturdays and Sundays. For your convenience, we have published school holidays in Slovenia 2024/25 in both formats.

In addition to school holidays, Slovenian schoolchildren have a break from classes on public holidays. In 2024-2025, there are only 12 such days. But 9 of them fall on holiday periods, and only 3 fall on school time.
