About Koroška region

Koroška (Carinthia) comprises three valleys – the Mežiška dolina, the Dravska dolina and the Mislinjska dolina valleys, and three mountain ranges – the Pohorje, the Karavanke and the Savinjske Alpe, that mark the landscape with an independent originality and solidity. A little above a thousand square kilometres and some more than 74 000 inhabitants put this region amongst the smallest in Slovenia. more

The wholeness of the mountain nature and the woods with an extensive net of mountain roads is offering a wide choice of discovering strolls to the peaks of Peca and Raduha and in the wide vastness of Uršlja gora, Olševa, the Smrekovec, the west Pohorje and the Kozjak range; as well as to the slopes of picturesque alpine valleys. You will find the stops in these routes equally beautiful and exciting as the natives, the proud heirs of “the self-sown”, welcome you with their rough, but kind-hearted hospitality.

Nature

The Geopark Karavanke is a cross-border geopark and as such a member of the European Geoparks Network (EGN) as well as the Global Geoparks Network (GGN), assisted by UNESCO. The geopark lies at the boundary of the African and Eurasian tectonic plates. In the collision of the plates, a rock mass rose out of the seabed, forming the Alps, one of the longest mountain ranges in the world.

History & culture

It is also one of the oldest Slovenian industrial regions. The previous centuries gave start to mining in the area (the beginnings of mining allegedly go back to the Roman era); and afterwards ironworks and wood industry have flourished here. Today we are trying to present the work of miners, crofters, charcoal-burners, rafts men, carpenters and blacksmiths most authentically and vivaciously as an important part of our heritage.
