The Drava River's spring is located in north-eastern Italy and, on its path, it crosses Austria and Slovenia until it joins the Danube in Croatia; its path is more than 720 kilometres long, of which 133 kilometres run through Slovenia. The power of the river was once used by timber rafters and later by hydroelectric power plants that partially dammed its flow. In Dravograd, the first hydroelectric power plant in Slovenia was established. Nowadays, four hydroelectric power plants are located in the Koroška region. Today, the river represents a unique natural habitat with plants and animal groups and some endemic species.
