Zaplana (pronounced [zaˈplaːna]; German: Saplana[2]) is a small village in the hills west of Vrhnika in the Inner Carniola region of Slovenia.[3]


The settlements of Jamnik, Jerinov Grič, Marinčev Grič, Mizni Dol, Prezid, Strmica, Vrhnika, and Trčkov Grič were all administratively separated from Zaplana in 2002 and given the status of independent villages.[4]


Saint Ulrich's Church

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Ulrich and belongs to the Ljubljana Archdiocese.[5] The church was renovated in a pseudo-Romanesque style after fire and earthquake damage in 1895.[6]
