Besides Kozje, the central settlement of Kozjansko area on the extreme south of the Šentjur Municipality is Planina pri Sevnici.

It is 17 km from the centre of Šentjur and was mentioned for the first time as a wine growing settlement already in the year 1190, however, in 1345 it was mentioned as a market town (the copy of the pillory has been preserved until today).

The inscription on the plague memorial testifies that  in 1646, a plague demanded the lives of a  thousand victims. However, besides that, also frequent peasant risings demanded many victims. In the beginning of the 19th century, the inhabitants were famous for the most beautiful beef cattle which they were selling at fairs, however, some of the inhabitants were also tradesmen. 

The wealth of the district has been in its woods which even today are being taken advantage of by the Bohor company. The local company Tajfun invented innovative machinery (forestry winch, power saw). In the woods in the springtime you can admire the protected yellow flower 'Jarica'.
The area was cut off from the most important traffic route - the railway, which at the turn of the 20th century connected the region of Celje with the world and that environment offered only a modest means of survival to the local inhabitants, however, because of that, the nature remained untouched. 

Also the German writer of Slovenian origin Anna Wambrechtsammer, who is famous mainly for her novel ‘The Counts of Celje Today and Never Again’ was creative and inspired in that environment. Planina with its ethnologic collection, Castle and preserved Turkish linden is an excellent starting point for walks to the nearby hill Sv. Križ (St. Cross), past the chapels of the Stations of the Cross or along the marked mountain path from Sedlarjevo to Bohor.

However, in the nearby Gothic church of St.Vidus (sv. Vid), Friderik of Celje and Veronika Deseniška supposedly got married. Organised events include a walk along the paths of XIVth Division in February and the traditional Angel Sunday at the beginning of September.
