Predgrad (pronounced [ˈpɾeːdɡɾat]; German: Vornschloß[2] or Pölland[3]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Kočevje in southern Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included in the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region.[4]

The local church is dedicated to Saints Fabian and Sebastian and belongs to the Parish of Stari Trg ob Kolpi. It is a mid-18th-century Baroque building that replaced an earlier church on the site.[5]

The settlement contains the scant ruins of a 13th-century castle that was destroyed in 1809 by Napoleon's forces.[6]
