The town of Grosuplje lies in a small basin to the south-east of Ljubljana. As one travels from Ljubljana to Grosuplje, Ljubljana Marshes blend into the characteristic hilly landscape of the Dolenjska region.


Grosuplje's surrounding area is well known for its rich cultural heritage and natural beauties. The most interesting places to see include the Magdalenska gora archaeological site, a fortified church on the Tabor hill above the village of Cerovo, the Županova jama cave and a karst polje known as Radensko polje.

The area of Grosuplje has been settled since around 500 BC. Its earliest known mention dates back to 1136. Today, Grosuplje is a centre of crafts and industry whose rapid development is mainly due to its good transport connections and nearness to Ljubljana.
