Celje is the City of the Counts. It is also "the town where I want to live". Could the residents have selected a better slogan for their town? Could a town wish for more than for its inhabitants to love living in it?

Celje has a population around 50,000. The city prides itself on its rich history. The Celts, and later the Romans, laid the foundations of the ancient Celje, bestowing beauty and glory upon it, and in medieval times, the town drew its power from the Counts of Celje who spread the splendor of the three stars of Celje across Europe.
