Opis

The municipality of Oplotnica, which covers 33 square kilometres of the picturesque landscape at the foot of the south-western slopes of the Pohorje plateau, is situated in the north-eastern part of Slovenia. The latest archaeological research has shown that the territory of the present municipality of Oplotnica was settled by man already in the 3rd millennium BC. The region has for two thousand years been an important crossroads, as transport and trade routes traversed the area from Italy in the west to Pannonia in the east, via Noricum, and vice versa. In modern history, Oplotnica is first mentioned as an economic centre in 1182. It belonged to the Žiče monastery until 1782. Due to the timber industry, trade and the quarry in nearby Cezlak, in the 19th century, a larger rural settlement took shape, and is nowadays one of the most densely populated regions. Its image is formed by 21 settlements (Božje, Brezje, čŒadram, Dobriška vas, Dobrova, Gorica, Koritno, Kovaški vrh, lačna Gora, Malahorna, Markečica, Okoška Gora, Oplotnica, Pobrež, Prihova, Raskovec, Straža, Ugovec, Zg. Grušovje, Zlogona Gora, Zlogona vas) which shape the landscape with their characteristics. The most developed economic activities in the valley are farming and wine growing, whereas stockbreeding and forestry are more developed on the slopes of Lačna Gora, Fošt, Gorica and Okoška Gora, which slowly ascend towards Pohorje.
The municipality of Oplotnica borders the municipalities of Zreče, Slovenske Konjice and Slovenska Bistrica.
