Opis

Ivančna Gorica is a young municipality, founded on 1st January 1995. Its headquarters is located in the fairly new settlement of Ivančna Gorica, whose development has greatly been influenced by its favourable position in terms of transport, as it lies halfway between Ljubljana and Novo Mesto. The fact that the municipality has existed for more than ten years and the good traffic connections have influenced and enabled trades, services and industrial activities to develop. Several archaeological findings at Vir and the Roman milestone (now depicted in the municipal coat-of-arms), found in the centre of Ivančna Gorica, prove that the area has been settled for a long time. The municipal festival is celebrated on 29th May, to remember the day in 1871, when the author of the first Slovenian novel Josip Jurčič became editor of the “Slovenski narod” (Slovenian People) newspaper. This is to pay respect to this great local man and his rich creative legacy. But his fame is only a stone in the mosaic of the varied cultural, historical and natural heritage of the whole municipality. The ancient Cistercian monastery of Stična, where the white monks live, is also located in this municipality. And the old parish of Ĺ entvid, now famous for being the home of Slovenian choir singing, has had an even longer tradition. A special link with the past is represented by the medieval Višnja Gora. For most people, the Dolenjska region begins here, beyond the fog of Ljubljana where the sun shines on the beautiful hills and dales. And where does the Dolenjska Beauty hide? You reach it by passing JurčičÂ´s Muljava and looking for the lively village of Krka, where the River Krka, one of the most beautiful Slovenian rivers rises.
