Šenbric (pronounced [ʃɛmˈbɾiːts] or [ʃəmˈbɾiːts]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Velenje in northern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of Styria. The entire municipality is now included in the Savinja Statistical Region.[2]

History[edit]

Šenbric was created as a separate settlement in 1982 by combining parts of the settlements of Hrastovec and Šmartinske Cirkovce.[3]

Church[edit]

The local church from which the settlement gets its name is dedicated to Saint Brice (Slovene: sveti Brikcij or Bric) and belongs to the Parish of Velenje–Saint Martin. It is a Late Gothic building that was extensively rebuilt in the 18th century.[4]
