The Municipality of Logatec has a population of 10,000 and is situated at the junction of the Julian Alps and the Dinaric Alps only thirty kilometers from Ljubljana. Its lowest area is Planinsko polje (443 meters), and its highest point the Srnjak summit (918 m) in the Hrusica mountain range. The dominant landscape feature is the extensive forest that covers high karst plateaus.

The identity and development of the municipality have been dictated by its natural resources, its geography, and its strategic location as a crossroads and border region in the past. During the late Roman period, the Logatec Basin was the center of a unique chain of border forts called the Claustra Alpium luliarum.

The rich forests provided the means to develop wood-based crafts such as wheelmaking, barrelmaking, wagon building, and carpentry as well as the lumber and paper industries. Along with forestry and the wood industry, agriculture and small manufacturing today play an important role in the economy of the municipality. The Municipality of Logatec provides the residents of twenty settlements with primary education, health and social services, and facilities for political, cultural, social, and sports activities.

The landscape is very diverse in this part of central Slovenia. Subalpine hills to the north border the flat floor of the Logatec Basin, and Planinsko polje with its meandering Unica River is very interesting, a typical karst phenomenon. Planinsko polje is one of Slovenia’s very few natural lowland grasslands and is rich in rare plant species such as marsh gentian (Gentiana pneumonanthe), meadow squill (Scilla litardierei), Siberian iris (Iris sibirica), bog orchid (Orchis palustris), and summer snowflake (Leucojum aestivum).

Rich and majestic spruce (Picea abies), silver fir (Abies alba), and mixed forests cover the larger part of the limestone bedrock and provide habitats for animals such as deer, bear, and lynx and several rare plant species including the carnivorous great sundew (Drosera angelica), round-leafed sundew (Drosera rotundifolia), and common butterwort (Pinguicula vulgaris). Along with their economic and ecological importance, the forests also offer an exceptional environment for recreation and relaxation.
