Vojnik is spread in central Slovenia in the NE of the Celje Valley. Most of the people make their living from farming, but there are also many small businesses. Vojnik was recorded as a borough in 1306 and since then it has been changing a lot. It was on fie many times and it even burned to the ground in 1839. Vojnik is in the middle of two worlds: on one side peacefulness of the sub-Pohorje highland and on the other side noisy roads connecting north and south.


Vojnik people are very open minded, friendly and always in good spirit. The town is well known for its hospitality and many good pubs are just inviting the travelers to stop here and take a break. The beautiful nature, green hills and clean rivers give opportunities for tourism.
