Largest Slovenian region by population and second largest by size lies in the center of the country, including a small border with Austria in the north of the region. Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, is situated in the large Ljubljana Basin, and forms the economic and population nucleus of the country. Ljubljana was established on the site of the Roman settlement of Emona, and nowadays sits at the junction of two of Slovenia's most important traffic routes. The region is divided between 25 municipalities.
Find your property in Osrednjeslovenska region. The most obvious advantages of this region are its favorable position at the crossroads of the main transport routes and the presence of the capital city of Ljubljana. After Slovenia gained its independence, probably too many decision-making functions, key governmental activities and other services of national importance were concentrated in Ljubljana, which may not be the most appropriate alternative to the former socialist model of multi-centered development. In a European context, Ljubljana is only a medium-sized town, but nevertheless there is easy access to it from abroad as well as from most of Slovenia. The other advantage the region has is the large catchment area of Ljubljana with its population near half a million, which makes Ljubljana and its surrounding area the most attractive Slovenian region for investment in service activities. Many activities of national importance are also situated in the capital, such as the university, research institutes and the medical centre, as well as the various departments of the state administration, the majority of whose employees work in the capital. It is, therefore, hardly surprising that the active population rate is above the national average, that almost one third of all people employed in the country live here, that average wages and purchasing power are the highest in Slovenia and that the unemployment rate is well below the national average. On the negative side environmental difficulties and traffic jams in the capital are worth mentioning. The rapid development of Ljubljana has also caused intensive sub-urbanization of neighboring municipalities, mostly those fringing the city to the north, causing, among other effects, increasing economic differentiation between suburban areas north and south of the capital.
