Oplotnica is a young commune in the northeastern part of Slovenia at the foot of the southern slopes of the Pohorje Mountains. At the area of the commune of Oplotnica people lived alreday 3000 years before Christ, they found many proofs of aboriginals and their settlements. At the time of the Romans, Oplotnica belonged to the province called Norik, actually between two provinces, Norik and Pannonia. The most famous was the so-called White city, the roman settlement between Oplotnica and Čadram. In Čadram the statue of the pagan god Jupiter was found, which stood in the centre of the city. This shows on the importance of the settlement in those days. The name of Oplotnica was first mentioned in 1182. At that time the duke of Sryria, Otokar VI. Trangau, donated the castle Oplotnica and its territory to the Carthusian monastery in Žiče.
The commune gets its complete image from its 21 settlements, which are spreading from 370 metres up to 937 metres above sea level. The most developed activities here are agriculture, fruit growing and wine growing, but also stockbreeding and forestry.
