Summary/Abstract: In the 1920s, the Slovenian political attitude to Bulgaria was most often related to the formation of autonomist‑federalist national programmes. Already in 1922 – 1923 the Slovenian autonomist‑federal political ideology argued for the federal union of Slovenians, Croats, Serbs and Bulgarians. Stamboliyski’s rule, his efforts to improve the Yugoslav‑Bulgarian relations and the coup d’état on 9 June 1923 were widely reflected and discussed. During the 1930s, the active Slovenian interest in Bulgaria was also apparent in other fields. In 1934, Yugoslav‑Bulgarian League Societies for cultural familiarization were established in Ljubljana, Celje, and Maribor. The Slovenian newspapers focused on the Yugoslav‑Bulgarian relations. When the friendship agreement between Yugoslavia and Bulgaria was signed in 1937, the newspaper Slovenec published a special Bulgarian supplement Šumi Marica where representatives of the Bulgarian political, economic, cultural, scientific and ecclesiastical life presented the historical and contemporaneous Bulgaria. The reports published in Slovenec in 1877 about the Bulgarian uprising preceding the Russian‑Turkish War were also reprinted.
