The Bank of Slovenia (Slovene: Banka Slovenije) is the Slovenian member of the Eurosystem and has been the monetary authority for Slovenia from 1991 to 2006, issuing the Slovenian tolar. Since 2014, it has also been Slovenia's national competent authority within European Banking Supervision.[2]


Based in Ljubljana, it was established on 25 June 1991. It is a non-governmental independent institution, obliged to periodically present a report on its operation to the National Assembly of Slovenia. Its primary task is to take care of the stability of the domestic currency and to ensure the liquidity of payments within the country and with foreign countries. It also acts as the supervisor of the banking system.

The bank is headquartered in a prominent building in the center of Ljubljana, erected in 1920-1923 for the Ljubljana Credit Bank.[3]
