Rožna Dolina (pronounced [ˈɾoːʒna dɔˈliːna]; Italian: Valdirose, German: Rosenthal) is one of the four suburbs of the town of Nova Gorica in western Slovenia (the others being Solkan, Kromberk, and Pristava). It is located on the border with Italy. Before 1947, it used to be a suburb of the town of Gorizia, which was left to Italy in the Paris Peace Conference of February 1947.
It is the site of one of the major engagements in the Ten-Day War for the independence of Slovenia in June 1991.
The largest Jewish cemetery in Slovenia and one of the largest in the Alpe-Adria region is located in Rožna Dolina. Among other graves, it contains the tomb of the Italian philosopher Carlo Michelstaedter.
The countess Lucy Christalnigg, first victim on the Isonzo-front, was a resident of Rožna Dolina. She was on her way back to Rožna Dolina in August of 1914, when she was shot by two Landsturmer guards at a roadblock.
