Domžale (About this sound pronunciation ) is a municipality and city Slovenia.

It has a lively traditional music scene.

The municipality lies near the foothills of the Kamnik Alps and is crossed by the river Kamniška Bistrica that originates in these Alps. Its landscape is characterized by forested hills and agricultural plains.

History

The remains of an ice-age hunter's dwelling found at Babja jama in Gorjuša date to 15,000 BP. There is archaeological evidence of a pre-Roman Illyrian and Celtic settlement. Roman finds date to the time of the road connecting Aquileia, Æmona (today Ljubljana, and Celeia (today Celje). The area is first mentioned in documents datint to the 12th century. A local nobleman and owner of Krumperk Castle, Adam Ravbar, was a victor in the Battle of Sisak in 1593, in which the Ottoman army was defeated.

Economic development accelerated in the 19th century with the industrialization of the local craft of straw weaving (Slovene: slamnikarstvo).
