Role and significance

Geoss is actually the centre of the plane of our country as it is impossible to determine the centre of an irregular formation such as the outline of state borders. For the purpose of easier understanding, we have simplified the term and designated it as the Geometric Centre of Slovenia or in short - Geoss.

Geoss symbolized the Slovenes being deeply rooted in this territory, their vigour, resilience and defiance as despite the centuries of pressures they did not let themselves be deprived of their nationality; it represents the centuries-long endeavours of Slovenes for their existence and development. The symbol of Sloveneness and Vače, the linden tree - a holy tree for our ancestors - has grown in well until today.

It finally also represents our gaining of independence, our resolute demand that we alone are masters of our land and the only ones to make decisions. To all four corners of the Earth we are spreading the noble idea of ardent culture and the desire for co-operation on equal terms. It symbolises the heart of our country which is common to all Slovenes irrespective of the ideological, religious and other differences.

Geoss offers possibilities for various cultural, sporting and other collective open-air events and state-level visits. In the European Union, Geoss is the only such area protected by law, which also legally substantiates its significance.
