Savinjska region, Velenje Urban Municipality ID

The former land of the Counts of Celje is very diverse in terms of natural geography; it comprises mainly the wooded alpine world attractive for tourists (the Upper Savinja valley and a part of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps), the fertile Lower Savinja valley with good conditions for growing hops, the Kozjansko hills and the Velenje basin with lignite deposits for the production of electricity. The above-average number of students per 1,000 population and the high share of students among the population aged 19-26 are significant educational potentials for the region. The region is also a popular tourist destination.

The urban municipality Velenje lies in the eastern part of the Šaleška valley. The municipality's centre is a typical industrial town Velenje, growing into an administrative, business and supply centre of the Savinjsko-Šaleška region.
