Past Events





The Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia Belgrade officially opened in 2001, although the diplomatic relations between the Republic of Slovenia and Republic of Serbia were established in 2000. Other representative offices of the Republic of Slovenia also include Consulate of the Republic of Slovenia Novi Sad.

The embassy provides consular services and promotes bilateral political, economic, and cultural ties between the two former states of the Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia.


Cultural cooperation

Bilateral cultural cooperation is based on the "Agreement on Cooperation in the Fields of Culture and Education", signed in 2001. This legal basis enables a platform for regular cooperation and cultural exchange between cultural and educational institutions, which is usually annually renewed with programmes of cultural cooperation between the two Ministries of Culture.
