Where are we

The smallest region in the heart of Slovenia. Mountainous region carved by water into three valleys harbouring municipalities Hrastnik, Trbovlje and Zagorje ob Savi. Large coal deposits fired the industry over two centuries ago and transformed the region into an important industrial nexus.

264 km2 area is a home to 43 thousand people, the number slowly declining. Zagorje ob Savi is the largest municipality by size and population, the biggest city is Trbovlje and Hrastnik guards the Eastern border of the region.

Zasavje was connected to the outside world in 1848 by railroad, still a part of the V. railway corridor from Venice to Kiev and X. corridor from Salzburg to Thessaloniki. A highway runs near the northern border of the region, the A1 (Šentilj - Srmin), integral part of 5th European corridor Lyon – Kiev, connected to E70 (La Coruňa-Trabzon), E57 (Sattledt–Ljubljana) and E59 (Prague–Zagreb).

Distances to major transportation hubs and business centres are short. Ljubljana is 60 km away, Maribor 90, Vienna and Venice less than 300 km, Belgrade, Budapest and Munich are roughly 450 km away. Ljubljana airport is 64 km away and airports Zagreb, Klagenfurt, Graz and Trieste are from 100 to 200 km away. Seaports Koper, Trieste and Rijeka are 170 km away.
