The two-character ISO 3166 country code for SLOVENIA.


1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Republic of Slovenia. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Slovenian bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for Slovenia. This is used as an international standard for shipping to Slovenia. Each municipality has its own code with the prefix "SI." For example, the code for the Municipality of Bled is ISO 3166-2:SI-003.
