Delo (English: Labour) is a national daily newspaper in Slovenia.

History and profile[edit]

Delo was first published on 1 May 1959 when two newspapers Ljudska pravica (meaning The People's Right in English) and Slovenski poročevalec (meaning The Slovenian Reporter in English) merged.[2][3] The paper is based in Ljubljana.[4]

For more than 50 years it has been involved in active co-creation of the Slovenian public space.[citation needed] It covers politics, economics, sports, culture and social events in Slovene language. In addition to Slovenia, the paper is available in several Croatian cities and in Belgrade, Serbia.[citation needed]

Delo is published in broadsheet format by media house Delo which also owns Slovenske novice.[3][5] It offers content in print and also on web, mobile and tablet platforms. It publishes a mixture of different media, such as the tabloid Slovenske novice, bimonthly cultural newspaper Pogledi and various supplements.

Delo published seven regional editions until 2008 and since then it has published only one national edition.[3]

The circulation of Delo was 90,000 copies in 2003.[4] Its 2007 circulation was 77,000 copies, making it the second most read daily in the country.[6] It was 46,726 copies in the period of July–September 2011.[7]


Delo has the following weekly supplements:[2]

  • Posel & Denar on economy and markets (Mondays)
  • Ona ("She") women's supplement (Tuesdays)
  • Delo in dom ("Work and Home") about housekeeping (Wednesdays)
  • Polet ("Flight" or "Enthusiasm/Drive") about recreation and free time (Thursdays)
  • Vikend ("Weekend"), TV guide with additional entertainment news (Fridays)
  • Sobotna priloga ("The Saturday Supplement"), a weekly supplement with commentaries, analysis and features on current events (Saturdays)
  • Odprta kuhinja ("Open Kitchen"), Food guide (Sundays)

Delo publishes a special Sunday edition, Nedelo ("Idleness" or "non-work"; Nedelo is a play on words since Nedelja is Slovene for Sunday), in a smaller and bound (stapled) format.

Delo has published The New York Times International Weekly on Fridays since 2009.[2] This eight-page supplement covers English-language articles from The New York Times.[2]

Digital platforms[edit]

Delo publishes its content on its website, on mobile platform, on iPad and on android.

According to the monthly metric of website visits, MOSS, the website of the paper was the 17th most visited web page (out of the 107 measured) in Slovenia in May 2012.[8]
