Opis

The municipality of Tržič comprises 0.8% of Slovenian territory. In the north it borders Austria (on the central ridge of the Karavanke mountains), in the west the municipalities of Žirovnica and Radovljica, in the east Jezersko and Preddvor, and in the south Naklo and Kranj. Almost all of its area is in the Tržiška Bistrica river basin, only a small part in the River Kokrica basin. In the north, the municipality covers the central part of the Karavanke mountains, in the south the country changes into hills which then pass into the flatter land known as Dobrava, which borders the northern part of the Ljubljana Basin. The mountainous part of the region consists of several valleys, of which the three most important ones are: - the Tržiška Bistrica valley - the Mošenika valley - the Lomščica valley Due to its geographical position, the municipality has a predominantly harsh Alpine climate and therefore relatively low temperatures, with an above-average level of precipitation. Seventy percent of the area is covered with forests, in which spruce firs prevail. The foundation and development of the town of Tržič have been associated with the route, which connected the Roman settlements Virunum (now in Austria) and Emona (now Ljubljana). After the original hamlet of Ljubelj (Forum in Lubelino) was destroyed by an avalanche, some of the residents moved further down and began to construct Neumarkt, a new settlement. At the end of the 15th century, the village was granted market town rights by the emperor Friderich III. Another important moment in the history of Tržič occurred in the year 1811, when the town was badly damaged by fire. There were 75 casualties, 150 houses burned down and more than 60 workshops were destroyed. The renovation took a long time but the interesting point is that, after the disaster, Tržič was one of the first places in Europe to have metal shutters and doors on its buildings.
