The two most developed networks are those of Mobitel and Simobil. These are also Slovenia's largest mobile operators. As in other European countries, the GSM mobile phones operate at the frequencies of 900 MHz and 1800 MHz.

Purchase of a SIM Card and Mobile Telephone

If you are coming from the countries where your mobile operator charges a high price for calls to and from Slovenia and you intend to call phone numbers within Slovenia, maybe it would be better to instead buy a Slovenian SIM card or even a prepaid phone. The offer is wide. You can buy a SIM card or prepaid telephone for as little as EUR 10.

Mains Voltage

The mains electricity in Slovenia is 230 V, with a frequency of 50 Hz. Slovenia uses the so-called European plug with the official designation CEE 7/16. This is the plug used in most other European countries. Guests coming from the following European countries will have to provide the appropriate adapter:

  • Great Britain
  • Ireland
  • Cyprus
  • Malta
  • Switzerland
  • Liechtenstein
  • Denmark

Inhabitants of other continents will also need to have appropriate adapters to use their electrical appliances in Slovenia.

Due to the numerous models of sockets, it is easiest for you if you bring your own adapter with you. Otherwise, you can obtain the adapters for most other European plugs and American plugs from the specialist electrical shops.
