Vrhnika is a city and a municipality in Slovenia. It is situated on the Ljubljanica River, 21 km from Ljubljana. The origin and development of Vrhnika, a small town lying on the south-western edge of Ljubljana Marshes near the source of the Ljubljanica river, were closely connected to ship traffic on the Ljubljanica. In Roman times, the site of the present Vrhnika was occupied by a strategically important settlement called Nauportus. The earliest mention of Oberleibach, a medieval settlement on its site, dates back to the 12th century. In the early 20th century, Vrhnika saw the development of mainly wood processing and leather industries. In 1955, it was finally designated a town.
