Time

  • Slovenia lies in the Central European time zone. Winter time is GMT plus one hour while in summer it’s GMT plus two hours.
  • Clocks are advanced at 2am on the last Sunday in March and set back at the same time on the last Sunday in October.
  • Like some other European languages, Slovene tells the time by making reference to the next hour – not the previous one (as in English and other languages). Thus 1.15 is ‘one-quarter of two’, 1.30 is ‘half of two’ and 1.45 is ‘three-quarters of two’.
