The smallest Slovenian region by size and population, and the only one without an external border, is situated in the Sava Mountains in the centre of Slovenia and was formed around the brown coal deposits found in the three narrow valleys of the Sava river's tributaries. Due to its steep mountainous terrain, which presents a major constraint on agricultural development, Zasavska remains largely a mining and industrial region. Since mining operations in two out of the three existing mines are closed and the third is in the process of being closed, great structural changes and new challenges await the region in the forthcoming years, including tackling the region's rather polluted environment.
Find property for sale in Zasavska region. Zasavska region, which covers only 1.3% of the national territory, is located in the central part of the Sava Mountains with their limestone ridges. Here too, the Sava river carved a gorge more than 30 km long and up to 500 m deep. A few km north of the gorge, the Moravce-Trbovlje-Lasko valley system runs in an east-west direction. The Sava's left tributaries carved their transverse narrow valleys into this system, facilitating access to brown coal deposits. The Zagorje mine was being gradually shut down since 1996. The rest of the mines in Trbovlje and Hrastnik, which are planned to gradually close down until 2012, provide the coal for the Trbovlje thermal power plant.
