Jesenice

4.1
Jesenice is a Slovenian town and the seat of the Municipality of Jesenice on the southern side of the Karawanks, bordering Austria to the north. Jesenice is known as the Slovenian home of mining and iron making industries, its largest steel company Acroni, and its ice-hockey club, Acroni Jesenice. Historically, Jesenice's ironworks and metallurgy industries were the driving force of the town's development.HistoryNameJesenice was attested in written sources in 1337 as villa de Jesenicza . The name is derived from *Jesenicě, a locative singular form of Jesenik . The suffix -ě became -i in the local dialect and was reinterpreted as a nominative masculine plural, the accusative of which was subsequently reinterpreted as today's feminine nominative plural. The name is derived from the common noun *jesenik 'ash woods', thus originally meaning 'in the ash woods' and referring to the local vegetation. The modern German name of the town is Aßling.Middle AgesJesenice was first mentioned as Assling in a 1004 deed of donation issued by King Henry II of Germany, in which nearby Bled (Veldes at the time) was also mentioned. There were no settlements there at that time, and the name Assling only marked an area on the banks of Jesenica Creek. Later, a settlement slowly started to grow around the area now known as Murova, where the St. Leonard's Church is today. With the March of Carniola it passed to the Austrian House of Habsburg upon the Battle on the Marchfeld in 1278.
Jesenice is in Upper Carniola Region. Make your own Jesenice vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Slovenia tour planner.
