History

Archaeological evidence shows that the area was already settled in the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age. In 1755 deposits of coal were discovered in the area and the town’s economic development began. Coal mining was one of the area’s main activities until 1995, when the last mines were closed. In 2010, Zagorje ob Savi was heavily affected by floods.

Church

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ljubljana. It is a Neo-Romanesque church built in 1873.
