Slovenia will be guest of honour at the 2022 edition of the world’s most important book fair in Frankfurt. This is a major national project, as it represents Slovenia’s entry into the honorary pavilion of the biggest cultural festival in the world. By 2022, up to 100 Slovenian books could be translated into German and English. Slovenia’s honorary participation is a unique opportunity for its publishing industry as well as for the country itself. The Slovenian government has earmarked EUR 2.5 million for this project.

The presence of Slovenia at the world’s most important literary event also signifies the country’s entry into more prominent intercultural dialogue. According to the Minister of Culture Anton Peršak, Slovenia is a country with a rich culture and, in particular, with high-quality literature of all types and a long tradition of great creativity in this field. The Slovenian government and literary community therefore see the decision to give Slovenia and Slovenian literature the chance to present itself at the Frankfurt Book Fair as an excellent opportunity that will contribute to better visibility of the country and its literature and culture.
