The Municipality of Medvode covers a total area of 78 square kilometres and has a population of 14,151 people (2002) living in 31 settlements. Since it is situated only about 12 kilometres from Ljubljana, the municipality falls under administrative control of Ljubljana.

The Social Activities Department of Medvode Municipality is responsible for social and health care, education and sports as well as for public culture and cultural heritage preservation. Medvode has four castles, two of which - Goričane Castle and Lazarini Mansion in Valburga - are municipal institutions. The Medvode Union of Cultural Societies and the Youth Centre Medvode, organiser of a traditional festival, play an active organisational role in municipal cultural affairs.
