Ambrož pod Krvavcem (pronounced [amˈbɾoːʃ pɔt kəɾˈʋaːu̯tsɛm]; German: Sankt Ambrosi[2]) is a high-elevation village in the Municipality of Cerklje na Gorenjskem in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.

Name[edit]

The name of the settlement was changed from Sveti Ambrož (literally, 'Saint Ambrose') to Ambrož pod Krvavcem (literally, 'Ambrose below Mount Krvavec') in 1955. The name was changed on the basis of the 1948 Law on Names of Settlements and Designations of Squares, Streets, and Buildings as part of efforts by Slovenia's postwar communist government to remove religious elements from toponyms.[3][4][5] In the past the German name was Sankt Ambrosi.[2]

Church[edit]

Saint Ambrose's Church

The local church is dedicated to Saint Ambrose, thus also the village's name.[6]
