Podravska region, Slovenska Bistrica 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 Slovenska Bistrica municipality is one of the largest Slovene municipalities by the population. In economy, manufacturing prevails. Otherwise numerous cultural and natural sights are important (e.g. Marolt fir tree).
