Podvelka

Podvelka, the principal town of a young municipality, is an interesting settlement on the right Drava bank. In the past this town only served as a home to forestry workers who prepared the alluvial wood for sale. The uninhabited neighboring hill slopes are nowadays a paradise for visitors looking for peace, freshness of nature and pure forest air. These beauties can be experienced on Janževski vrh, Javnik and Lehen na Pohorju. The tourists especially appreciate raft rides on Drava, in tourist village of Javnik, as well as church of St. John (Sv. Janez) at Janževski vrh which is known for its extraordinary strong positive energy with healing effects. At Kapla on Kozjak hikers can stretch their legs on the Panoramic Trail with 19 stops and also on Heart Trail, which is shorter and easier.
