Ivančna Gorica is a settlement and a municipality in central Slovenia. It is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region.NameThe name Ivančna Gorica literally means 'Ivanko's hill', which is the name of a local hill. While the settlement was still a hamlet, it was known as Pod Ivančno gorico (literally, 'below Ivanko's hill'). Like similar names (e.g., Ivanjkovci, Spodnji Ivanjci, etc.), it is derived from the hypocorism *Ivanko, based on the personal name Ivan 'John'.HistoryIvančna Gorica did not exist as a settlement until 1945, before which it was a hamlet of Stična and Mleščevo. After the Second World War, the spruce forest on Ivanko's Hill (Ivančna gorica) was cleared and houses were built. The number of houses in the settlement grew rapidly during the 1960s.Church and shrineThe parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Joseph and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ljubljana. A wayside shrine in the centre of the settlement known as the Abbot's shrine (Opatovo znamenje) appears on the coat of arms of the municipality. It was a Roman milestone that was recarved in 1583 on the orders of Laurentius Rainer, the abbot of the Cistercian Abbey at nearby Stična.Add Ivančna Gorica and other Slovenia destinations to your travel plans using our Slovenia online trip maker.
