Upopulated settlements

On 1 January 2019 there were 6,035 settlements in Slovenia, 57 of which were unpopulated. The largest number of unpopulated settlements was in municipality Kočevje: 17. In 2018 one settlement became unpopulated: Nova Gora in municipality Dolenjske Toplice had one resident on 1 January 2018, and none at the beginning of 2019.


The most densely populated urban settlement

The most densely populated urban settlement in Slovenia was Piran in the municipality of the same name where an average square kilometre of the settlement's surface area had almost 5,360 residents. If we were to populate the entire surface area of Slovenia this densely, we would need nearly 109 million people.

The most sparsely populated settlement in Slovenia, excluding unpopulated ones, was Gotenica in municipality Kočevje, where there was less than 0.1 of a resident living on an average square kilometre of the surface area (or one resident per nearly 12 km2). If the entire country was populated this sparsely, it would have just over 1.700 residents.


Settlements without children, settlements without the elderly

Eight settlements of at least 30 residents had no residents under 15 years of age. The largest of such settlements were Završje in municipality Trbovlje and Logje in municipality Kobarid: they had a population of 42 each, but no residents aged younger than 15.

There were three settlements without elderly population (aged 65 or older). The largest of these three was Sovinek in municipality Semič where all 44 residents were under 65 years of age.
