Študa (pronounced [ˈʃtuːda]; in older sources also Studa;[1][2] German: Studa[3]) is a former village that is now part of Domžale in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.[4]


Študa is a sprawling settlement south of the main core of Domžale. It lies along the lower reaches of Mlinščica Creek, a tributary of the Kamnik Bistrica.[2][5] The soil in the area is sandy and the fields to the south are intensely cultivated.[2]


Študa was mentioned in historical sources as Stude in a document from 1205 (in which a witness signed himself as Grifo de Stude).[6]:56


Študa was the very first of the settlements comprising Domžale to be mentioned in historical sources, in 1205.[2][6]:56 During the Middle Ages, the various farms in Študa were held in feud to a variety of estates (Smlednik, Bogenšperk, Križ, and Bokavce) and parishes (Mengeš and Kamnik).[6]:160 The region was affected by the plague around 1600, as evidenced by the Dimec plague column (Slovene: Dimčevo znamenje) dating from 1602.[2][6]:167 The shrine stands west of the village along the road to Dragomelj.[6]:167 The farmers in Študa held common land until 1882, when it was divided.[6]:101 Along with Spodnje Domžale, Stob, and Zgornje Domžale, Študa was amalgamated into Domžale in 1925, ending its existence as an independent settlement.[2][6]:7 A radio transmitter capable of broadcasting across Slovenia was set up in the meadow west of Študa in 1928.[2]
