There are several post offices in Ljubljana. Their opening hours are from 7:00 to 19:00, while on Saturdays they close at 13:00 .


The country code for Slovenia is 386. City codes are 1 for Ljubljana, 2 for Maribor, etc. The international exit code is 00. Public phones are operated by chip-cards, which you can buy at the post office or at the newsstands. Check the On-line telephone directory of Slovenia, which is regularly updated.

In November 2000 a major reorganization of the telephone numbering system has been completed. Area codes lost the leading 6 (e.g. Ljubljana area code 61 was replaced by 1) and some area boundaries have changed. Most telephone numbers were changed as well, at least the leading one or more digits. Get a new telephone number from an old one.
