The centre of the Podčetrtek Municipality and the province Srednje Sotelsko. On a hill above the town perches Podčetrtek Castle which was first mentioned as long ago as the 13th century. The area obtained the rights of the borough in the 15th century. Since that time the judicial and borough days, which were connected with the name of the area, have taken place on Thursdays.
Under the castle, by the picturesque stream running through the gorge, stands the Parish Church of St. Lawrence.  The present function of the central settlement is supplemented with numerous trading activities, central primary school and kindergarden, medical centre with pharmacy, post office, bank and the role of the municipality and tourist centre.
The spa centre Terme Olimia is located in the immediate vicinity of the nucleus of the settlement.

Additional description : This border settlement with a nucleated centre lies in a narrow lateral valley and on the slopes above it, between the river Sotla and the eastern slopes of forest-covered Rudnica.

It is the centre of the municipality of Podčetrtek (61 km2, 3,374 inhabitants) and the Srednje Sotelsko region. Podčetrtek Castle, which stands on a hill above the settlement, first appears in historical records in the 13th century, although its present appearance dates from the 18th century, when it was renovated by the Counts of Attems. Podčetrtek was granted market town rights in the 15th century. Since then, Thursdays have been court days and market days, hence the name of the settlement (četrtek = Thursday).

Next to the castle is a forest reserve of lindens and hornbeams. The parish church of St Lawrence stands by the picturesque gorge of the stream below the castle. Podčetrtek's present-day role as a central settlement is complemented by numerous small businesses and craft activities, a central primary school and kindergarten, a health centre with pharmacy, a post office and a bank.

Podčetrtek plays the roles both of municipal centre and centre of tourism in the area. The well-known Terme Olimia spa is not far from the centre of Podčetrtek.
