Dravograd is situated at the meeting point of three valleys: the Meža, Mislinja and Drava valleys. The old market center with many fairs, below the former castle with a road customs post, later became a landing place for the ferry across the Drava and even later a larger railroad crossing. A modern settlement was built, which today is divided by the Drava on the right and left bank. The village has many historical traces. The raftsmen who transport tourists on the Drava today, the famous church of St. Vitus in Dravograd, the interesting ossuary in Libeliče, the collection about the Nazi violence in Dravograd and the Bukovje castle with the exhibition about the Karavanke Geopark and the battles in Koroška in 1991 stand out. From the naturalistic point of view, the landscape highlights in Dravograd can be found in the Košenjak-Velka area and at Lake Dravograd. Along the Dravograd Lake there is the Beaver Water Trail. The area is 105 km², with about 8,900 inhabitants.
