Borovak pri Podkumu (pronounced [bɔɾɔˈʋaːk pɾi pɔˈtkuːmu]) is a settlement east of Podkum in the Municipality of Zagorje ob Savi in central Slovenia. Traditionally the area was part of Lower Carniola. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Sava Statistical Region.[2]


The name of the settlement was changed from Borovak to Borovak pri Podkumu in 1955.[3]


The local church (building) in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Ursula and belongs to the Parish of Šentjurij–Podkum. It is a Gothic building that was extended in the 17th century and restyled around 1800.[4]
