Podravska region, Maribor Urban Municipality ID

In terms of natural geography, the Podravska statistical region is marked by hills in the northeast, subalpine wooded mountains (Pohorje and Kozjak) to the west and Dravsko-Ptujsko polje along the Drava River. The water wealth of this region is used for electricity production (the chain of hydroelectric power plants on the Drava River), while the fertile soil is used for agricultural production.

The urban municipality Maribor is one of the largest Slovenian municipalities in terms of population. Settlement Maribor lies along the Drava River and is the administrative, business and cultural centre of the municipality and the Podravska region.
