Continuously in print since 1947, Gorenjski glas (meaning The Gorenjska Voice) is a regional newspaper published twice per week. It is 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 freely to all the households in a particular municipality.


Gorenjski glas has its roots in a newspaper called Gorenjc, first published in 1900. It was coming out until 1916, was resurrected in 1934 and once again discontinued in 1941. Then in 1944, even while the war 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 settled as a biweekly journal.

Of a more recent history is the fact that Gorenjski glas is – as of the year 2013 – run and owned by its own employees, the journalists.
