Šmiklavž (pronounced [ʃmiˈklaːu̯ʃ]) is a settlement in the City Municipality of Slovenj Gradec in northern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of Styria. The entire municipality is now included in the Carinthia Statistical Region.[2]

The parish church from which the settlement gets its name is dedicated to Saint Nicholas (Slovene: sveti Miklavž) and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It dates to the 13th and 16th centuries.[3] A second church on a hill south of the settlement is dedicated to Saint Helena. The earliest phases of the building date to the 13th century.[4]
