Telephone numbers in Slovenia
|Country calling code||+386|
|International call prefix||00|
Slovenia received a new country code following the breakup of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1991 (which previously had 38 as country code). Additionally, the Ipko mobile phone company in Kosovo uses the +386 country code.
This is an alphabetical list by town of phone dialing codes in Slovenia.
All telephone numbers are 9 numbers long (initial 0 plus eight numbers). The first one, two, or three digits after the zero are the area code. The possibilities are: (0x) xxx xx xx, (0xx) xxx xxx, and (0xxx) xx xxx.
Originally, there has been only one provider of landline telephone, Telekom Slovenije.
When making a call within the same landline area (Telekom), the area code is omitted. If a number has been transferred to another operator (e.g. T-2), it can still be reached without the area code; but to call from a transferred number, the area code must be dialed in all cases. Examples:
- 01 xxx xx xx (Telekom) to 01 xxx xx xx (Telekom) dials xxx xx xx
- 01 xxx xx xx (Telekom) to 01 xxx xx xx (T-2) dials xxx xx xx
- 01 xxx xx xx (T-2) to 01 xxx xx xx (Telekom or T-2) dials 01 xxx xx xx.
This does not apply for mobile phone numbers and VoIP numbers, where the area code must always be dialed.
There are also some special numbers, namely 112 for Fire and Ambulance and 113 for Police; toll free and premium rate numbers usually look like 090 xxxx or 080 xxxx.
Example for calling
The international call prefix depends on the country you are calling from; e.g., 00 for most European countries, and 011 from North America. For domestic calls (within the country), 0 must be dialed before the area code. The prefix for international calls from Slovenia is 00 (e.g., for a United States number 00 1 ... should be dialled).
An example for calling telephones in Ljubljana is as follows:
xxx xxxx (within Ljubljana) 0 1 xxx xxxx (within Slovenia) +386 1 xxx xxxx (outside Slovenia)

2 Calling codes in the table are assigned to new customers by the respective provider. However, it has been possible to change the operator and retain the old calling code (along with the rest of the phone number) since 2006. Calling codes do not necessary reflect the operator, but it is not possible to transfer a mobile number to a land-based operator and vice versa.
