Delo (German: Die Arbeit ) is the largest, most renowned and most influential Slovenian daily newspaper. It is a quality newspaper, comparable with the claim of the Süddeutsche Zeitung . It was founded in 1959 and is published in Ljubljana . Until 2015, the newspaper was owned by the Slovenian brewery Pivovarna Laško (80.83%) and its subsidiary, the beverage manufacturer Radenska . After several years of unsuccessful search for a new owner, as part of the takeover of the brewery by the Heineken Group, the newspaper was sold to the Slovenian industrial holding FMR (co-owner of the Kolektor Group of Stojan Petrič), as was the most widely read Slovenian tabloid, Slovenske novice, with 63,000 copies.

The circulation is around 43,000 newspapers. In 1980 the circulation reached a record of 100,000 copies and was the most widely read newspaper in the former Yugoslavia after the Belgrade newspaper Politika .

The root of Delo, the newspaper publisher "Slovenski poročevalec" (German: The Slovenian rapporteur ), in 1955 from the union of enterprises "Slovenski poročevalec", "Tiskarna Slovenskega poročevalca" (printing of Slovenski poročevalec) and "Tovariš" (German: The Comrade ) arose. The first edition of Delo appeared in 1959 after the newspapers Slovenski poročevalec and "Ljudska pravica" (German: People's Justice ) were merged. The Sunday edition is a summary of the week's events. Her name NeDelo is a play on words, literally translated it means not working and alludes to Nedelja (slow for Sunday ).

On Saturdays there is an extensive supplement (Sobotna priloga) with detailed comments, but also partly high-quality letters to the editor, which almost exclusively deal with Slovenian topics.
