Continuously in print since 1947, Gorenjski glas (meaning "The Gorenjska Voice") is a twice-weekly regional newspaper covering events and issues affecting Gorenjska, a region in the Alpine northern part of Slovenia. It is the primary printed media of this region and has a circulation of about 20,000 issues.

Furthermore, Gorenjski glas runs a dense network of different local and regional magazines and other publications for almost 20 of the bigger towns in the region. Most of these are sent free-of-charge to all the households in a particular municipality.


Gorenjski glas has its roots in the newspaper called Gorenjc, first published in 1900. It was published until 1916, was resurrected in 1934 and once again discontinued in 1941. Then in 1944, even while WWII was still raging, Gorenjski glas saw its first three editions published. It came into regular circulation in 1947 as a weekly and after some time established itself as a semiweekly newspaper.

A notable and more recent fact: Gorenjski glas is – as of 2013 – run and owned by its own employees, the journalists.
