Upopulated settlements

On 1 January 2020 there were 6,035 settlements in Slovenia, 57 of which were unpopulated. The largest number of unpopulated settlements was in municipality Kočevje: 16. In this municipality, the settlement Kleč, unpopulated in 2019, had a population of four on 1 January 2020.

In 2019 one settlement became unpopulated: Rogla in municipality Zreče had three residents on 1 January 2019, and none at the beginning of 2020.


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 Trnovec in municipality Kočevje, where there was less than 0.05 of a resident living on an average square kilometre of the surface area (or one resident per 21 km2). If the entire country was populated this sparsely, it would have fewer than 950 residents.


Settlements without children, settlements without the elderly

Ten settlements of at least 30 residents had no residents under 15 years of age. The largest of such settlements was Završje in municipality Trbovlje: it had a population of 42, 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 39 residents were under 65 years of age.
