Past Events




The Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Skopje is the official representative body of the Slovene Government in the Republic of North Macedonia. The embassy maintains and strengthens the relations and contacts with North Macedonian state institutions and their representatives and promotes cooperation and bilateral political, economic and cultural relations between Slovenia and North Macedonia. It also provides consular assistance, together with the Consulate General of the Republic of Slovenia in Bitola.


Cultural cooperation

The legal basis for cooperation in the field of culture is the Agreement on Cooperation in Culture, Education and Science between the Republic of Slovenia and the Republic of Macedonia signed in July 1993 in Ljubljana.

The Programme of Cooperation in the Field of Culture for the Years 2010–2013 was signed in Skopje by the two ministers of culture in March 2010. On that occasion Majda Širca opened the exhibitions Jože Plečnik (1872-1957). Architect in Ljubljana, Prague and Vienna and Modern Architecture in Slovenia 1999–2010. Both exhibitions were featured as a part of the 15th Architectural Biennial of Macedonia BIMAS 2010.

The Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Skopje participates in the organisation of a range of cultural events. In 2010 several literary evenings (Mitja Čander and Lucija Stupica, Primož Repar, Josip Osti), choral concerts and folklore events, as well as exhibitions (NAME Readymade produced by Aksioma Institute) took place in Macedonia. Slovene artists presented themselves at several festivals: Anja Medved's video installation was shown at the Skopsko leto and two young Slovene film makers were awarded at the Roma film festival Zlato kolo Skopje and at the Asterfest film festival. Performances by the Mladinsko Theatre, Glej Theatre, and the Slovene National Theatre Drama Ljubljana were invited to the eminent MOT International Theatre Festival, while the Skupifestival 2010 hosted the Ma & Al by Mini Theatre.

Slovenian community in North Macedonia

Around 500 Slovenes live in North Macedonia. In 1994 the non-governmental organisation Slovenian Association France Prešeren was founded in Skopje (it has 160 members from all over North Macedonia), while in Bitola in 2007 the Slovenian Association Triglav was established. Both organisations are supported by the Government Office for Slovenians Abroad. The associations offer classes of Slovenian language and culture in cooperation with the Slovene Ministry of Education and Sport and the North Macedonian Government, which assists with space where the classes are held. In the academic year 2007/08 for the first time, 14 students were enrolled in the Slovenian language module as a part of the Bologna programme of the Philology Faculty Blaže Koneski, University of St. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje. An anthology of Slovene contemporary literature was published in cooperation with the Centre for Slovene as a Second/Foreign Language and the Department of Slovenian Studies, University of Ljubljana.
