Brod v Podbočju (pronounced [ˈbɾoːt ʍ pɔdˈboːtʃju]) is a small village on the left bank of the Krka River, opposite Podbočje in the Municipality of Krško in eastern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of Lower Carniola. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Lower Sava Statistical Region.[2]


The name of the settlement was changed from Brod to Brod v Podbočju in 1955.[3]

Cultural heritage[edit]

A wooden bridge from the early 20th century, made from oak beams, connects the village with the right bank of the river.[4]
