It is known primarily for its rich cultural and historical heritage and with developed craft and industry, a city, which is only a twenty minute drive from Ljubljana and along the highway towards Zagreb.

The municipality covers Grosupeljska valley, which consists of Šmarska Valley, Grosupeljsko and Radensko field and the surrounding hills, which are characterized by many small valleys and karst fields.
