Institution
We are a regional development agency for Gorenjska and we meet development challenges together. We are building Gorenjska as a community which, with its healthy Alpine environment, enables us to work, live and entertain ourselves, as well as to fully unleash our creativity and ambitious ideas. We are merging our human, natural, cultural and developmental potential to join the company of the most successful Alpine regions. To some, the word vision is just an empty word reiterated by dreamers; to some it gives hope; and to some it means a clear goal which they are determined to achieve. How can you achieve your goal if you don’t know where are you going? We therefore set clear, yet ambitious goals, which will be difficult to achieve but are worthy of our efforts. We are a regional development agency for Gorenjska and we meet development challenges together with region. Gorenjska – Going up! Welcome to have a look.

Region
Gorenjska lies in the northwest of Slovenia. To the north it borders Austria (Carinthia) along the Karavanke mountain range; to the west Italy (the Friuli-Venezia Giulia province) and the Gorica developmental region; to the east the Savinja region, and to the south it opens up towards the central Slovenian region. Gorenjska is crossed by the 10th European motorway and railway corridor. The town of Brnik hosts Slovenia’s central airport, i.e. Ljubljana Airport (1.4 million passengers a year). All this contributes to Gorenjska’s favourable geo-traffic position and its relatively good accessibility. With 203,427 (January 2011) inhabitants, Gorenjska represents 9.9 % of the national population. Covering 2,137 square kilometres which is 10.5 % of the Slovenia’s total surface, Gorenjska is the sixth in size of all Slovenian regions. Population density is under national average (95.2 inhabitants/km2). However, some parts represent larger densely populated and urbanized areas such as the regional centre of Kranj. Gorenjska is an Alpine region with a characteristic diverse mountainous landscape. Seventy percent of the region is a mountainous world, while only 29.8% lies in the depressed/lowland part of central Slovenia. As much as 40.2% of Gorenjska lies more than 1,000 metres above sea level, 59.4% is covered with forests, 30.6% is agricultural land and 10% infertile land. Additionally, 44.4 % of the surface area is incorporated into NATURA 2000 sites.
