The Municipality of Črna na Koroškem (pronounced [ˈtʃəɾna na kɔˈɾoːʃkɛm]; Slovene: Občina Črna na Koroškem) is a municipality in northern Slovenia. The seat of the municipality is the town of Črna na Koroškem. It lies in the traditional Slovenian province of Carinthia,[2] close to the border with Austria. Since 2005 it has been part of the larger Carinthia Statistical Region.

Geography[edit]

The municipal area stretches along the upper Meža Valley at the confluence of the Meža River with its tributary Javorje Creek (Slovene: Javorski potok). The surrounding mountains of the Karawanks and Kamnik–Savinja Alps ranges include the Peca massif at the Austrian border in the northwest, with the summit of Kordež Head (Slovene: Kordeževa glava) reaching an elevation of 2,126 m (6,975 ft). Due to its picturesque setting, the municipality is a popular destination for mountain hikers.
