UNESCO defines the intangible culture as practices, representations, expressions, knowledge, skills that communities recognize as part of their cultural heritage. This intangible cultural heritage, transmitted from generation to generation, is constantly recreated by communities and groups in response to their environment, their interaction with nature and their history, and provides them with a sense of identity and continuity, thus promoting respect for cultural diversity and human creativity.

In Slovenia it is usually divided in the following areas:

Its safeguarding is based on the UNESCO Convention (2003) and the state law on natural and cultural heritage (2008) and is coordinated by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum.

In September 2019 the national register of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Slovenia lists 72 items, among them the Škofja Loka Passion Play, the Laufarija in Cerkno, the Procession of the Kurent - Korant, Making Idrija bobbin lace, Ribnica woodenware, Traditional production of sea salt, the Traditional breeding and keeping of Lipizzaner horses at the Lipica stud farm, Slovene folk-pop music, the Reading Badge movement, and the Painting beehive panels.

Among the 508 elements corresponding to 122 countries on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity there are also the ones related to Slovenia: the Škofja Loka Passion Play (inscribed in 2016), the Door-to-door rounds of Kurenti (2017), the Bobbin LaceMaking (2018) and the Art of dry stone walling, knowledge and techniques (Croatia, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland) (2018).

Cerkno Museum

The Cerkno Museum was established by Idrija Municipal Museum in 1978 as a branch museum about the NOB (National Liberation Struggle). Today this institution is the only one that studies the rich heritage of the Cerkno region in an integral way.

In 2006, on the 50th anniversary of the revival of the Cerkljanska Laufarija, a new permanent exhibition entitled Pust is to Blame! - A Story about the Cerkno Laufarija was put on display. The Cerkno laufarji are among the most famous carnival figures in Slovenia, whose wooden masks called larfa are cut from the wood of the linden tree.

Seviqc Brežice Festival

The Seviqc Brežice Festival was established in 1982 by Ars Ramovš, who is the founder, organiser and producer of the annual event. Since 2007 it has run under the name Seviqc Brežice (abbreviation for Semper viva quam creata - "Always live as created"). The festival connects high-quality international practitioners of Early Music with their counterparts from Slovenia. The concerts take place from late June up to November, usually at exquisite cultural heritage sites, mostly castles, palaces and churches of south-eastern Slovenia.

The programme premieres new and authentic material, carefully chosen to promote the diversity of European early music, from the late Middle Ages right up to the beginning of the 20th century. In doing so, the programme breaks all taboos surrounding Early Music, giving it an insightful and honest platform and bringing in new audiences every time. The festival also encourages young Slovene artists and musicologists to study, research, and perform Early Music.
