Back to Slovenia Portal Page

Slovenia is traditionally divided into eight regions. The traditional regions of Slovenia based on the former four Habsburg crown lands (Carniola, Carinthia, Styria, and the Littoral) are the following:

Administrative Regions of Slovenia
English Name Native Name
Upper Carniola Gorenjska
Styria Štajerska
Prekmurje Prekmurje
Carinthia Koroška
Inner Carniola Notranjska
Lower Carniola Don
Goriška Goriška
Slovenian Istria Slovenska Istra

Goriška and Slovenian Istria together are known as the Littoral region (Slovene: Primorska). White Carniola (Slovene: Bela krajina), otherwise part of Lower Carniola, is considered a separate region of Slovenia, as are Zasavje and Posavje, the former being a part of Upper Carniola, Lower Carniola and Styria; and the latter part of Lower Carniola and Styria.
