The purpose of the thesis is to determine the boundaries of dense rural settlements according to various indicators on the basis of available spatial data. In the theoretical part we’re presenting different definitions of the boundaries of the village of Slovenian spatial planning legislation to the various authors who have dealt with the study of settlements. Based on the available data and the indicators we defined in the case of three test areas Gorica and Studenčice in Municipality of Radovljica and Kočna in Municipality of Jesenice, we set boundary of settlement for each of mentioned settlements. All three settlements belonging by the typology to the compact village settlements (Fister, 1993). Boundary of the village were determined using data on cadastral municipality (GURS, 2014), on the border of the village from the Register of Spatial Units (GURS, 2014), on the Record of the actual use of agricultural and forest land (MKO, 2013), on purposely land use (Spatial order Municipality Radovljica, 2012 and the Municipal spatial Plan of the Municipality of Jesenice, 2013) and on the basis of determining deviations (»buffer«) of objects. We compared the results obtained for each village and found out that the boundaries of the village can’t be determined on the basis of the cadastral municipality borders and boundaries of the village from the Register of spatial units. The other five indicators gave comparable results. We can establish that for a reasonable determination of boundaries of the compact village settlements, is essential to combine a large number of indicators and whenever possible the field visit. Transfer of indicators for each type of settlement to the level of the whole settlements of Slovenia is difficult due to the great diversity of Slovenia and because of nature-geographical environments variety and is not possible only on basis of the test on those three selected cases of settlements.
