Location and transport

The Posavska Region borders on Croatia. Thanks to the immediate vicinity of Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, with the population of 1.5 million on the one hand, and relatively good transport links (road and railway leading to Ljubljana - Zagreb), the region has a lot of potential.


The region boats a long tradition in:

  • metal-processing industries
  • wood-processing industries
  • paper industry
  • textile industry
  • civil engineering & construction
  • trade


The only nuclear power plant in the country and the thermal riviera at the Čatež health resort are its main features.  

The region has become home to a number of foreign investors who were able to tap into the pool of skilled workforce and easily get industrial land for development or re-development.


The most important companies operating in the region include:

  • Evrosad (fruit growing industry)
  • Gen-I (supply of electricity and natural gas)
  • Kopitarna Sevnica (manufacture of footwear)
