The Rožnik District (pronounced [ˈɾoːʒnik] ( ); Slovene: Četrtna skupnost Rožnik), or simply Rožnik, is a district of the City Municipality of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. It is named after Rožnik Hill.

Geography[edit]

The Rožnik District is bounded on the southeast by the railroad from Ljubljana to Sežana; on the southwest by the A2 Freeway, the Gradaščica River, and a line across Utik Hill; and on the north by Youth Street (Mladinska ulica) and a line across Rožnik Hill. The district consists of much of Rožnik Hill, part of Tivoli City Park, the Ljubljana Zoo, the former villages of Bokalce, Grič, Rožna Dolina, and Vrhovci, and the neighborhood along Rožnik Lane (Podrožniška pot) known as "Partizanska Vas" (literally, 'Partisan village').[2][3]
