Tržič is a town and municipality in northern Slovenia near the Austrian border (before the Loibl Pass). The first settlement was founded near the road that connected Roman city of Emona with Virunum in present-day Carinthia. After a landslide caused by an earthquake, the original settlement was destroyed and many people moved down the valley to establish a new settlement named Neumarktl where Tržič is now located (these events are the basis of the legend about the origin of Tržič). The town was granted market rights in 1492, which caused further development of the town.
The great fire of 1811, which destroyed the buildings on the left bank of the Tržiška Bistrica River, changed the town. After the buildings were rebuilt they needed to have firewalls, iron doors, and window covers, a very rare feature in Europe. The town center of Tržič has been protected as a cultural heritage site since 1985.
As of 2007 the town had a population of 15,851. Much of the town's architecture was constructed in the Classicist style. The leather, wood, and textile industries were important to the economy of Tržič in the past but industrial activity declined after the breakup of Yugoslavia. The development of small business after this period is now an important branch of the economy.
