Kamnik is a town in northern Slovenia. It is the central settlement of the Municipality of Kamnik. It encompasses a large part of the Kamnik Alps and the surrounding area. The town of Kamnik has ruins of two castles as well as many examples of historical architecture.HistoryThe name Kamnik was first mentioned in the 11th century. The first time it was mentioned as a town was in 1229, when it was an important trading post on the road between Ljubljana and Celje. This makes the town one of the oldest in Slovenia. In the Middle Ages, Kamnik had its own mint and some aristocratic families among its residents. The town was among the most influential centers of power for the Bavarian counts of Andechs in the region of Carniola at the time. The only remnant of the Bavarian nobility are the two ruined castles which are both strategically built on high ground near the town center. The Franciscan monastery built in the town itself is a testament to its importance. The building is well preserved and has undergone extensive renovation in recent years.Historical suburbs of the town include Šut(i)na, Na Produ, Novi Trg (, ), Pred Mostom (, ), Graben, and Podgoro. In 1934 the following formerly independent settlements were annexed by Kamnik: Fužine, Žale (in older sources also Žalje, ), Zapr(i)ce, Kratno, Pugled, Zgornje Perovo, Spodnje Perovo, Bakovnik, and the lower part of Mekinje.
