The history of Prevalje is the history of ironworks, since the ironworks factory located in Prevalje was the strongest in this part of Europe up to its closing. The municipality boasts a rich cultural history: the Roman stones excavated in Zagrad, two wonderful Gothic churches above Leše, the Štopar Bridge, an incredible technical monument, the former seat of the St. Mohor’s Society publishing house (Mohorjeva družba), and the idea of the reading badge for schoolchildren, which was born here. You most certainly need to visit the Šentanel tourist village, take a walk to Poljana, where the soldiers fought the final battles of WWII in Europe, as well as the Holmec border crossing, which saw one of the most important battles in the 1991 independence war for Slovenia. The Single Trail Park at Jamnica attracts mountain bikers from all around the world.

Podvelka

SuperUser Account 0 953 Article rating: No rating

Podvelka is an interesting settlement on the right Drava embankment. This location has once solely been the dwelling of forest workers, who prepared the wood that was washed ashore for selling. The uninhabited steep slopes are a paradise for visitors who enjoy peace, the freshness of nature and the clear forest air. You can find this at Janževski Vrh, Javnik and Lehn on Pohorje as well. The most popular tourist options include a timber rafting ride on the Drava River in the Javnik tourist village and the Church of St. John at Janževski Vrh which is said to have an incredibly strong and healing positive energy. At Kapla on Kozjak the hikers can take a walk down the Vantage Path (razgledna pot) with 19 stops and the Path of the Heart (srčna pot), which is shorter and easier.

Muta

Muta is located in the natural cradle between Pohorje, Drava and Kobansko. This place bears the stamp of forgers and iron foundries of the past. Several centuries of activity are religiously maintained by the Forge and Fire-Fighting Museum. Alongside the numerous cultural monuments, we need to point out the Kienhofen manor, which houses the museum, and also the round succursal church of St. John the Baptist. Calm and beautiful walks in idyllic nature, during all seasons of the year, are offered by the neighbouring Gortina, Pernice, Sveti Primož and Sveti Jernej nad Muto.

Mislinja

SuperUser Account 0 1133 Article rating: No rating

For an accidental traveller, Mislinja is a settlement with a church and a few houses on both sides of the main road, but in fact it unites five former old settlements. The development of the settlement occurred due to its location next to the Celeia–Colatio–Virunum antique road, making it easier for this location to develop trade, freight and ironworks. The first iron foundries were activated in 1724. The must-see locations are the Church of St. Lenart and St. Ahac, Robnik’s Forgery and archaeological excavations in Dovže – villa rustica. From here you will have plenty of opportunities to take pleasant trips to Kope, the central tourist and recreational centre of the Koroška region, Rogla, Turjak, Stara Glažuta and more. The locals are proud to call their settlement the birthplace of painter Jože Tisnikar.

Mežica

The idyllic town of Mežica is the principal, Alpine and mining tourist centre of the Mežica Valley. The Romans were the first to mine here under Mount Peca and today its underground houses a tourist mine and a museum. The forest roads and mountain trails lead to the surrounding hills. They also lead to the cabin at Mala Peca, where King Matjaž sleeps in a nearby cave. Above Mežica you will find the interesting Church of St. Lenart with the miracle-working chain, Podkraj with its typical granaries, and Lom with beautiful views over the neighbouring Podjuna. The area also holds a bee-making collection and several interesting interpretation points connected by a geological and hiking educational trail. The central Mežica sight is the Podzemlje Pece (Peca Underground) – a tourist mine and a museum which also holds the informational centre of the cross-border UNESCO Global Karavanke Geopark.

Dravograd

SuperUser Account 0 1211 Article rating: No rating

Dravograd is located at the crossroads of three valleys: Mežica, Mislinja and upper Drava valley. The town evolved from the market and fair centre, underneath the former castle with the former mitnica facility and so the city became a safe haven for transport on the Drava River, and later a larger railway crossing that grew into a modern settlement, divided by the Drava River to the left and right embankment. The municipality is intertwined with historical traces. The most prominent are the timber rafters, who nowadays transport tourists on the Drava River, the famous St. Vitus Church in Dravograd, the outstanding ossuary in Libeliče, the museum collection on Nazi violence in Dravograd, and the Bukovje mansion with an exhibition on the 1991 battles in the Koroška region. The areas of Košenjak–Velka and Lake Dravograd are the most naturally interesting parts of the Dravograd landscape.

Črna na Koroškem

Črna na Koroškem is a picturesque municipality. The beautiful Alpine valleys of Topla, Koprivna, Bistra, and Javorje are the natural marvels of this municipality. The Ludranski Vrh settlement is home to the Najevska Lipa lime tree, the oldest Slovenian lime tree with historical memories dating back to the times of Turkish invasions to this area. It is the elaborately designed mining and ethnology collections in the Črna centre that remind us of times past. The settlement itself houses a ski slope and is the cradle of some of the best skiers, who are the reason Črna is also called the “village of Olympians”. These athletes and their accomplishments are presented in the permanent exhibition of Olympians from Črna na Koroškem. King Matjaž's Castles is the most prominent winter tourist event in the Koroška region, taking place every year in Podpeca.

Have you ever heard of the legend of King Matjaž? King Matjaž is still sleeping under Mount Peca. In his honour, at the flatlands of Mitnek under Peca, above Črna na Koroškem, people have been building snow castles for more than 25 years. On the last weekend in January, enthusiasts from near and far gather in Podpeca and compete in building snow castles.

Ski Touring

Heading out with your skis to the remote peaks is rewarded with unforgettable descents. Sliding down the silent slopes will trigger adrenaline despite the serenity of the environment. If the weather is favourable and the snow is in abundance, the Koroška region offers you incredible experiences with quality descents on the mountainsides of Peca, Raduha and Olševa.

It is Mount Peca that is exceptionally interesting for ski touring, mostly to those who enjoy descending rather than ascending, as there is a tow ride on the Austrian side up to 1,950 m of altitude, just under the mountain’s peak.

Cross-Country Skiing

The silence of nature and thousands of ice crystals sparkling on the vast snow-covered surfaces will definitely calm down a busy mind. Koroška is the also the right destination if you like cross-country skiing. There are more than 30 kilometres of regulated trails. You will surely find the right trail for you at the Pohorje plains between Kope and the Ribniška Koča cabin, in Črna na Koroškem and the nearby Bistra valley, the Ravne na Koroškem Sports Park, in Kotlje and the section of the cycling route down the Mislinja Valley through Dovže. At the nearby Lake Pirkdorfer on the neighbouring Austrian side at the foothills of Mount Peca, they additionally cover the cross-country trails with artificial snow, enabling cross-country skiing even when there is not enough natural snow.
