Ruše lies in the north-eastern Slovenia and is categorised in the pre-Alpine foothills region. We know from historical sources that Ruše existed as a settlement in the Celtic and Illyrian period, i.e. around 400 B.C., as evidenced by rich archaeological diggings under the building of the Ruše Volunteer Firemen Society. A graveyard from the Celtic period was discovered, containing around 600 smaller and larger clay containers used for the ashes of the deceased. Ruins of an old Roman fort and a Mithraeum were discovered in the forest below the train station.
