Šilentabor (pronounced [ˈʃiːlɛntabɔɾ]) is a small settlement north of Zagorje in the Municipality of Pivka in the Inner Carniola region of Slovenia.[2]

Name[edit]

The name of the settlement was changed from Tabor to Tabor nad Knežakom in 1955.[3] The name was changed again to Šilentabor in 2000.[4]

Castle[edit]

Šilentabor Castle was a 15th-century castle, of which only few ruins are visible today. Archaeological excavations have revealed remains of a medieval defence structure and yielded numerous artifacts, confirming construction and life within the castle complex from the 15th to 17th centuries, as mentioned in historical sources.[5]

Church[edit]

The local church, built to the south of the settlement, is dedicated to Saint Martin and belongs to the Parish of Zagorje.[6]
