Zgornja Jablanica is a clustered settlement in the Posavje Hills. The village began to develop in parallel with the old mining industry, which dates back to the Roman era. In the middle of the field between Upper and Lower Jablanica, the Jablanica Spring with drinking water springs up, where the laundry was still washed by the fowls in the 1870s. Some say that the water is healing. Water cress, known as drumstick, grows by the spring. The villagers say that it used to be cut in the winter months and used to replace lettuce. The numerous double goats’ huts and outbuildings with craftsmanship dating back to the time of Lefstik testify to the fertility of the area. The population is cheerful and has a great sense of singing and of preserving cultural heritage. They can also give you a tour by prior arrangement.
The Church of St. Anne stands on a hill. Its present design is baroque with the year 1755 on the main portal. If you turn right at the granary in the middle of the village by the Jablaniškje brook, the nature trail leads you after three kilometres to the Bancerle organic farm.
The village is included in the Natura 2000 network of protected areas for its bat habitat.
