Description

Own Semic Slovenia, a settlement in the southeastern part of the country. It is the administrative center of the Municipality of Semič. The settlement is located in the traditional region of White Carniola (Bela Krajina, part of Lower Carniola) and the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region.

Semic Slovenia lies between the Kočevje Rog Plateau and the Gorjanci range of the Žumberak Mountains to the northeast. The slopes of the Gorjanci Hills are used for wine growing. Semič is the site of an Iskra Kondenzatorji capacitor production plant, the largest employer in the region. In the 1980s the improper handling of PCB waste material led to serious pollution of nearby Krupa Creek and caused a major environmental scandal. Semič has a population of 2017 people. Wikipedia.com
