Bleiburg
Bleiburg is a small town in the Austrian state of Carinthia, south-east of Klagenfurt, in the district of Völkermarkt, some four kilometres from the border with Slovenia. It is an old border town located in the valley of the Feistritz river, north of the Petzen massif of the Karawanken mountain range. It is home to a district court, military barracks and to the local productive and services industry. The name of Bleiburg, literally meaning "Lead Castle", can be attributed to the lead mining operations in the Petzen mountain. According to a 2001 census, Bleiburg has about 4,100 inhabitants. 30.4% of the population are Carinthian Slovenes (in 1971, they were 52.8%). The municipality consists of the twelve Katastralgemeinden Aich (Dob), Bleiburg, Grablach (Grablje), Kömmel (Komelj), Moos (Blato), Oberloibach (Libuče), Rinkenberg (Vogrče), Sankt Margarethen (Šmarjeta), Schattenberg (Senčni kraj), Unterloibach (Libuče), Weißenstein (Belšak) and Woroujach (Borovje).
