?kocjan (pronounced ['?k?:tsjan]; German: Sankt Cantian)[2] is a settlement in the traditional region of Lower Carniola in southeastern Slovenia, best known as the birthplace of the Slovene missionary Ignatius Knoblecher (1819-1858). It is the seat of the Municipality of ?kocjan and the Local Community of ?kocjan within the municipality.[3] The Municipality of ?kocjan is now included in the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region.[4]

Vrh Estate

The Vrh Estate (in older sources also Kole?nik,[2] German: Auenthal[2]) stands 1 km west of ?kocjan. By the 20th century it was reduced to a large farm owned by the Rupar family of Gori?ka Vas pri ?kocjanu.[5] The manor was built before 1667 by Wolfgang Blande. It passed through many owners over the following centuries and was purchased by the Rupar family in 1928.[6]


The local parish church from which the settlement gets its name is dedicated to Saint Cantius and Companions and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Novo Mesto. It is a medieval building that was extended in the 17th century and restyled in the Baroque style in the 18th century.[7]
