How Velenje Became a Town

Velenje Museum

Permanent exhibition

The photos reveal the beginnings of the contemporary Velenje town. The collection encompasses the period between 1945 and 1960 when Velenje started getting its new form.

A small rural borough underneath the Velenje castle converted to a contemporary, organized, modern town, so called "socialist miracle". This was the time of voluntary work and increasing prosperity of Velenje coalmine that enabled the growth of the town.
