About Velenje ...
Back in 1889 Velenje was a small market town with no more than 364 citizens, a figure which stands in total contrast to the present-day situation. Nowadays, spreading on a bit more than 83,000 square metres, Velenje is home to a good 34,000 Velenje citizens.
Moreover, Velenje is today one of the strongest economic centres in Slovenia. It is the city of large economic systems, equipped with modern infrastructure. Economic development is based on energy, metal-processing and construction industries. In addition, environmental-protection, craft and trade services have been experiencing solid development recently. Furthermore, Velenje is an employment, administrative and educational centre of a wider Savinjsko-Šaleška region.
