A random traveler might think of Melina, the principal town
of the Mislinja municipality, as no more than a town with a church and a few
houses by the main road, but actually it is a fusion of five former
settlements. The development of the town is connected with its position on the
antique road Celeia–Colatio–Virunum, which enabled the trade, the transport and
the ironworks to blossom. The ironworks in Mislinja started already in 1724.
Visitors today admire the churches of St. Lenart and St. Ahac as well as the
Robnik forge and archeological finds in Dovže - villa rustica. There are also
many possibilities for pleasant excursions to Kopa, Rogla, Turjak, Stara
Glažuta and elsewhere.
