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 May 2018 the national register lists 65 items of Slovene intangible heritage, 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, and the Painting beehive panels.

Among the 500 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).

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.

Museum of Apiculture, Radovljica

Museum of Apiculture, Radovljica, located in the Baroque Radovljica Mansion in the historic centre of Radovljica (together with Municipal Museum of Radovljica), was founded in 1959 by the executive committee of the Beekeepers' Association of Slovenia in response to an appeal in the journal Slovenski čebelar [Slovene Beekeeper] to collect more material on the ancient practice of beekeeping. The museum was incorporated into Radovljica Municipality Museums in 1963, thoroughly renovated in 1973, and again from 1996 to 2000.
