Urbanisation

The last decennia there is an uncontroled growth of urban settlements, which are partly illegal. When Slovenia agreed with the introduction in to the European Union there was a large economical impuls. People started to make industrial zones, houses, but also cottages in forests.

The preparation of industrial zone in Cerknica district (see photo) is an example of urbanisation in Slovenia. Before, this site was a forest and an important corridor for large mammals between Javorniki and Menisija (Photo: Maarten de Groot)
