A youthful town of art and culture

Velenje is embraced by nature on all sides. However, despite being less than an hour’s drive from Slovenia’s three largest urban centres (Ljubljana, Maribor, Celje) and being the country’s fifth largest city itself, Velenje is still largely undiscovered by tourists, both domestic and foreign.
