    Slovenia Slovenia

    210 Slovenske občine / Municipalities of Slovenia

    Unfortinatly the new site of Pošta Slovenije is far from perfect. Villages (Naselja v občini) aren't shown. But I took the data of Hofer to create this file.

    Three locations with the same postalcode and name create some problems :

    1252 Kandrše is both in Litija and Zagorje ob Savi
    2354 Zgornji Slemen is both in Maribor and Selnica ob Dravi
    3231 Grobelno is both in Šentjur and Šmarje pri Jelšah

    There are several spelling variations in the NIG file, but the most simple form goes to the location with the most people living there, being :

    1252 Kandrše to Litija
    2354 Zgornji Slemen to Selnica ob Dravi
    3231 Grobelno Šmarje pri Jelšah


    The are many locations with same name (and different postalcode), but in different municipalities. In these cases I have used location names like :

    8332 Bistrica (Črnomelj) and 3261 Bistrica (Kozje) but also 8332 Bistrica and 3261 Bistrica are in the file
