According to ALLCITYCODES.COM, Slovenia is a small but beautiful country located in Central Europe. It is bordered by Austria, Hungary, Croatia, and Italy. Slovenia has a population of over two million people and its capital city is Ljubljana. As a result of its location in the heart of Europe, Slovenia has become an important hub for international business and travel. The area code system in Slovenia is divided into four distinct regions: Western (Západné Slovensko), Central (Stredné Slovensko), Eastern (Východné Slovensko) and Southern (Južné Slovensko). Each region has its own area code which must be dialed when making calls to or from that particular region. For example, if you wanted to make a call to Bratislava you would need to enter “+4212” followed by the local number you wish to dial. Similarly if you were calling someone in Western Slovenia you would need to enter “+42135” followed by their local number. The international prefix for all calls within the country is “+42” regardless of which region one is calling from or to. Western (Západné Slovensko): +421 35, +421 38, +421 34 and +421 37 Central (Stredné Slovensko): +421 45, +421 44 and +421 43 Eastern (Východné Slovensko): +421 57, + 421 56 and + 421 55 Southern (Južné Slovensko):+ 421 51, 52 and 53. In addition to the regular area codes there are also emergency services numbers that can be dialled regardless of which part of the country one is calling from. These numbers are 112 for fire/medical emergencies; 158 for police; 155 for ambulance; 1401 for emergency assistance and 1402 for emergency medical assistance. It should be noted that these numbers can only be dialled within Slovakian landlines or mobile networks and cannot be dialled when using VoIP services such as Skype or Facetime. Furthermore, it should also be noted that all incoming calls from outside Slovakia will require the caller to enter their own countries international prefix before entering the number they wish to call within Slovakia i.e., if someone was calling from the UK they would need to enter “+44” before entering the relevant Slovakian area code followed by their desired local number. Overall, understanding how area codes work in different countries like Slovenia can help simplify communication between people living there and those living abroad as it eliminates any potential confusion caused by different country codes being used for different parts of the world or language barriers that could arise from using only local telephone numbers instead of international ones like those provided by VoIP services such as Skype and FaceTime. Slovenia is a parliamentary republic, with a multi-party system. The President of Slovenia is the head of state and Commander in Chief of the armed forces, while the Prime Minister is responsible for executive power. The National Assembly is the primary legislative body, composed of 90 deputies elected for a four-year term. Its primary functions are to pass laws, approve the budget, and ratify international agreements. Elections take place every four years and are based on a system of proportional representation. This ensures that all parties have representation in the legislature regardless of their size or support among voters. Slovenia has been a member of the European Union since 2004 and is an active participant in international organizations such as NATO and the United Nations. In addition to its strong economic ties with other EU countries, Slovenia also seeks to maintain close relations with its neighbors in Central Europe. PETSINCLUDE: Features public policy of Slovenia.
