Šentjanž nad Dravčami (pronounced [ʃɛnˈtjaːnʃ nad ˈdɾaːu̯tʃami]) is a settlement in the Pohorje Hills in the Municipality of Vuzenica in northern Slovenia. Traditionally the area was part of Styria. It is now included in the Carinthia Statistical Region.[2]

The local church from which the settlement gets its name is dedicated to John the Baptist (Slovene: sveti Janez Krstnik or Šentjanž) and belongs to the Parish of Vuzenica. It developed from an early 14th-century chapel that was extended in the 15th century.[3]
