A reminder that this Thursday and Friday are national holidays in Slovenia - Reformation Day and All Saints Day, respectively. As such government offices, banks, museums and many stores will be closed.

Reformation Day has been celebrated since 1992, despite the fact that Slovenia is a predominantly Catholic country, due to the importance of the Protestant Movement for the Slovenian language and nation. This importance is personified in the figure of Primoz Trubar (1508-1586), the Protestant priest whose Abecedarium spelling-book and Catechism, both published in 1550, were the first printed books in Slovene. All Saints Day, on 1 November, is a day for remembering the dead, and thus you can expect increased traffic around all major cemeteries
