Opis

The municipality of Podvelka is situated in the centre of the Drava valley, and covers parts of both the Kozjak and Pohorje plateaus. The municipality in its present form was founded in 1998. It consists of five settlements. These form five village communities, which are not a legal entity, but are of great importance for the activities of the municipality. The present mayor is Anton Kovše, who works for the development of the municipality as a whole. The social life in the municipality is very active. There are several clubs: - the sports clubs organize various events – “Veter v Laseh” (Wind in your Hair – an event promoting the fight against drugs using sport), football, volleyball and cycling competitions, - cultural societies, which include the drama club and the choir, make it possible for audiences to experience something memorable. Raftsmen take an active part in tourism – it is possible to go on a raft ride down the Drava, from the gorge to Javnik, or from Javnik to Ožbolt. In Javnik it is possible to visit the raftsman’s museum.

The municipality boasts wonderful natural heritage. We recommend a raft ride down the Drava with raftsmen – “splavarji”; those who prefer a more peaceful break, should stop at Kapla at Lake Odomovo, or visit the church of St. Ignatius on Glančnik, which is surrounded by a forest. The church of St. John on Janževski vrh is part of the healing energy ecosystem. It is said that the energy-levels are so high, that they restore your vitality, strength and health. It is recommended to visit the church for healing energy, relaxation and regeneration. There are many more peaceful spots in the municipality where it is possible to go for a walk and enjoy the beauties of nature.
Many efforts are made to stimulate tourism, to preserve tradition, to develop the activities based on natural heritage, and stimulate the work of various clubs in order to entertain the local residents.
