There are two churches in the settlement. One is dedicated to Saints Peter and Paul and belongs to the Parish of Braslovče. It dates to the 16th century with major 18th- and 19th-century rebuilding. The second church is dedicated to Saint Urban and belongs to the Parish of Nazarje. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1426.
