Near Gorica pri Slivnici, by the road to Podčetrtek there is lake, Slivniško jezero with an area of 84 ha (0.3 square mile) or the Kozjansko Sea as it is jokingly called by many. The lake is 5 km (3 miles) long and half a kilometre (0.3 miles) wide. It was created in 1976 by damming the streams, Dobrina and Ločnica.

History & culture

Rifnik is a prominent hill south of Šentjur. It dominates the landscape and its conical shape gives the Voglajna valley a particular appeal. It is therefore not surprising that Rifnik has been more or less continuously inhabited through all major historical periods. The Rifnik Archaeological Park is located on the site of the largest ‘Late Antique’ settlement in Slovenia.



The beatified Anton Martin Slomšek, the Ipavec family (Gustav, Benjamin and Josip), Blaž Kocen, Franjo Malgaj, Anna Wambrechtsamer and many others have left their mark on Slovenia as well as Central Europe.
