     Home | Municipality Slovenia | Radlje ob Dravi

Radlje ob Dravi ( ) is a town and a municipality in Slovenia. It lies in the traditional region of Styria, but belongs to the Koroška statistical region. The settlement itself lies on a terrace on the left bank of the river Drava.

The Parish Church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Michael and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It is a Gothic church from the 15th century that was restyled in the early 18th century in the Baroque style.

A large Baroque building on the western edge of the settlement used to be a Dominican convent. It was founded in 1251 and was an important landowner in the region. After the expropriation of the monasteries by Emperor Joseph II, the monastic church dedicated to The Annunciation of Mary was demolished.

Footballer Robert Koren was born here.
