Lovrenc na Pohorju is an urbanized, mostly roadside central settlement in the northern part of Pohorje, which lies in the Ribniško-Lovrenško valley, along the Radoljna stream. At the confluence of Radoljna and the stream Slepnica is the hamlet of Kurja vas. Newer neighborhoods are Na Puši and Gaberca. Although the prospects for farming are relatively favorable, the main economic activity is industry, which has developed in the past due to the abundance of water power and timber from nearby forests. Here were sawmills, blacksmiths, a tannery, a glassworks, and an iron ore smelter that was closed in the mid-19th century. From the craft workshops, the Piece and Sickle Factory and the Marles plant with a sawmill and a prefabricated house factory emerged. Although many people around are also employed here, several locals of Lovrenc drive to work in the valley, especially to Maribor and Ruše. The area where the settlement stands belonged to the St. Paul’s Monastery from Carinthia in 1091. In 1222 the settlement received fair rights, and in 1381 it is already mentioned as a square. There are three churches in Lovrenc. The parish church of St. Lawrence dates from the 18th century, previously there was a Romanesque building from the middle of the 12th century. In the southern part of the settlement stands the church of St. Radegunda, and in the middle of the square the church of St. The cross, which has its present appearance from the 17th century. High on the top of Pohorje are extensive peat bogs and Lovrenška lakes.
