Bistrica pri Tržiču (pronounced [ˈbiːstɾitsa pɾi təɾˈʒiːtʃu]; German: Feistritz[2]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Tržič in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.

Name[edit]

The name of the settlement was changed from Bistrica to Bistrica pri Tržiču in 1953.[3] In the past the German name was Feistritz.[2]

St. George's Church

Northeast of the settlement's core stands St. George's Church, a chapel-of-ease of the Parish of Tržič. It is a 15th-century Baroque-redesigned Gothic church with a late-Gothic chancel and a coffered ceiling. The furnishings are from the 19th century.
