Savinjska region, Žalec Municipality ID
The Savinjska region, 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 municipality Žalec lies in the Lower Savinja valley. The municipality's centre Žalec is the business, traffic, administrative and cultural centre of the municipality and the region. This area is also the hop growing centre of the Lower Savinja valley.
