There are 69 towns in Slovenia.[1] According to the Local Self-Government Act of the Republic of Slovenia, a town is a larger urban settlement with more than 3,000 residents and differing from other settlements in its size, economical structure, population, population density and historical development.[2] A settlement acquires the status of town through a decision of the Government of Slovenia.[2] Until 2005, the decision was made by the National Assembly of Slovenia.[2]
