Štrukljeva Vas (pronounced [ˈʃtɾuːkljɛʋa ˈʋaːs]; Slovene: Štrukljeva vas, German: Strukeldorf) is a small village east of Begunje in the Municipality of Cerknica in the Inner Carniola region of Slovenia.
The local church is dedicated to Saint James and belongs to the Parish of Sveti Vid. The church has a gilded altar from the second half of the 17th century with some late Baroque additions. The altar was renovated in 1928 by the wood-carver Franc Bečaj from Cerknica. The bell tower is several centuries old and appears to have been built as a separate structure. It contains a copper bell dating to 1445. Oral tradition relates that the villagers received the bell from Trsat in exchange for rights to a fair that was held below Kapelšče Hill (770 m) north of the village.
