Close to the city of Ljubljana and the Kamnik Apls
A fertile plain near Ljubljana, rich wooded grounds, and magnificent scenery of the Kamnik Alps - the source of the Bistrica river - constitute the area of Domzale.

With about 31,000 inhabitants and covering 7,972 hectares of land, the new municipality was established at the end of 1994. Its first mayor is Mrs. Cveta Zalokar Orazem; the Municipality was awarded a new coat-of-arms and a municipal holiday.

Domzale’s municipal holiday is April 19th, in remembrance of the day in 1952 when Domzale was pronounced a town municipality.

The basic motif of the coat-of-arms are ears of wheat, in memory of the straw-hat trade, that marked the beginning of business growth in this municipality. In the past, the straw-hat trade made Domzale famous near and far, even across the border.

The center of the new Municipality is the town of Domzale, with more than 11,000 inhabitants. It is an administrative, educational, cultural, and commercial centre.

The history of the municipality and the town is varied and interesting. Near Domzale, in the Babja cave on Gorjusa, an approximately 15,000-year-old dwelling of an Ice Age hunter was found. Fragments of bones and teeth of animals, blades made from flintstone, ancient charcoal remains of fireplaces, and even ornaments made from horn were excavated here.

Rich archeological excavations in this area give proof of continual habitation from the prehistoric era through the Roman civilization up to modern times. As an interesting detail, let us mention that the oldest written records from this region reach back to the 12th century The oldest preserved document mentioning Domzale dates from around 1220.

The water energy source of the Kamniska Bistrica and Mlinscica rivers, a suitable traffic access point, the vicinity of Ljubljana, and the railroad connection brought rapid economic development. This is to be said for both Domzale and its surroundings in trade and industry.

Since the Middle Ages, numerous water powered mills and sawmills as well as ironworks have been in operation in this region. In the second half of the 19th century, these activities were replaced by the straw-hat trade. To this day, the straw-hat trade represents an important historical link between the past and present development of this municipality.

However, our municipality is not known for its rapid progress alone. Thriving industry and numerous businessmen and craftsmen have brought about this present success. Among them, there are many successful individuals, culture and sports clubs, musicians, and events - all of them spreading the word of this successful and hospitable municipality from the heart of Slovenia into the wide world.
