Nova Vas pri Mokricah (Slovene: Nova vas pri Mokricah, German: Neudorf[2]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Brežice in eastern Slovenia, close to the border with Croatia.[3] The area was traditionally part of Lower Carniola. During the Second World War, when it was known as Nova vas pri Bregani, it was one of five Slovene settlements annexed by the Independent State of Croatia.[4] It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Lower Sava statistical region.

Name[edit]

The name of the settlement was changed from Nova vas pri Bregani to Nova vas pri Mokricah in 1993.[5] In the 19th century the German name was Neudorf.[2]
