Vuzenica

Vuzenica

Vuzenica lies at the confluence of Drava and its affluent Cerkvenica, under the north slope of the forest-covered Pohorje. The valley provides some wonderful views of Pohorje, with an even more gorgeous view from the top of Pohorje. Vuzenica is renowned as one of the oldest town in the Drava Valley. In the past, rafters launched their “flosa” from here, while hauliers transported their goods along the Drava River. There were also numerous fairs organised here in the past, a tradition that has been preserved to this day.

In Vuzenica, you can take a trip by bicycle, on a horse, or on foot, experiencing nature in all its glory. Numerous climbs are worth the effort, always rewarding with wonderful views. We must also mention the parish church of Saint Nicholas, first mentioned in 1238. In the 19th century, specifically between 1838 and 1844, the Bishop of Lavant Anton Martin Slomšek, a poet and a staunch advocate of Slovene national culture, also worked in Vuzenica. He worked as an archbishop, dean, and school supervisor, writing the textbook Blaže ino Nežica v nedeljski šoli.
