Banking in Slovenia

Opening an bank account is possible at almost any bank in the Republic of Slovenia.

If you have a residence permit you can open a resident bank account; otherwise, you can open a non-resident bank account (SKBNLBGorenjska BankaAddiko bankUniCredit BankLON d.d., NKBM, Intesa Sanpaolo bank, Delavska hranilnica, etc.).

It is safer to deposit your money in an account - carrying large amounts of cash is not recommended.

Using a card is the most common way to pay in Slovenia. Most shops, hotels and restaurants accept Eurocard, VISA, Mastercard, Diners Club, American Express and other payment cards.
