Ravne na Koroškem

Ravne na Koroškem is the biggest town in the Koroška region. It is the town of ironworkers, the Forma Viva steel sculptures, and a profusion of books. While the rich funds of the Dr. Franc Sušnik Central Carinthian Library bear witness of cultural development, interesting museum collections tell stories about the history of ironwork. In Preški Vrh above Kotlje stands the Prežih House (Prežihova bajta), consolidating the memory of the writer Lovro Kuhar – Prežihov Voranc. Lake Ivarčko lies under the mighty Uršlja Gora Mountain, which welcomes you in the summer and also in the winter with its snowy hillsides with ski slopes. There is a modern sports centre in Ravne, including anOlympic-size and an indoor swimming pool, an athletic stadium, a sauna, a fitness centre, and numerous sports courts. The municipality comprises around 11.300 inhabitants and extends the area of 63 km².
