Important notice

Changes to border crossing between Slovenia and Croatia after 1 January 2023 - information for travellers

Croatia joined the Schengen Area on 1 January 2023. As a result, border controls have been lifted at the land border between Slovenia and Croatia and free flow of traffic is now allowed through the border crossing points. This means that all eligible travellers (with a valid travel document for crossing the border) are able to cross the border between the two countries anywhere.

A temporary traffic regime has been put in place at all land border crossing points with Croatia, allowing the border to be crossed safely and as smoothly as possible, without the need to stop. All road users are therefore advised to observe the temporary traffic signals and to take particular care when driving in the areas of the former border crossing points.

Slovenian borders

The total length of the Slovenian state border is 1,370 km.

In the north, the Republic of Slovenia borders with the Republic of Austria. This border was determined by the Treaty of Saint-German (10. 9. 1919) and the Austrian State Treaty (15. 5. 1955). The length of the land and river border with the Republic of Austria is 318 km.

In the west, the Republic of Slovenia borders with the Republic of Italy. This border was determined by the Paris Peace Treaty (10. 2. 1947), the London Memorandum ( 5. 10. 1954) and the Osimo Agreements (10. 11. 1975). The land border with Italy is 232 km long while the maritime border is 48 km long.

In the east, the Republic of Slovenia borders with the Republic of Hungary. This border was determined by the Peace Treaty of Trianon (4. 6. 1920). The land and partly river border with Hungary is 102 km long.

In the south, the Republic of Slovenia borders with the Republic of Croatia. Until 31 december 2022 there were 57 border crossing points at the border with the Republic of Croatia (external Schengen border), namely 32 border crossing points for international traffic on the land border (road, railway) and 25 border crossing points for local border traffic on the land border (road).
