Vuzenica

Vuzenica, the principal town of this municipality, is a central settlement, idyllically set on the left Drava bank. Vuzenica is distinguished as one of the oldest towns in the Dravska dolina valley. Raftsmen once used to start their rafts in Vuzenica, and the carriers used to load their freight here lively. Numerous fairs were also vivacious once. Remains of the old castle bear witness of the former fame of Vuzenica, as well as the parish church of St. Nicholas (sv. Nikolaj). Among its parish priests was also the gentle poet and national awakener Anton Martin Slomšek. There is a possibility for wonderful autumn walks around the nearby Dravče, Sv. Primož na Pohorju, Sv. Vid and Šentjanž nad Dravčami.
