Dolnje Retje (pronounced [ˈdoːlnjɛ ˈɾeːtjɛ]; in older sources also Dolenje Retje,[2] German: Unterretje[2]) is a small village southeast of Velike Lašče in central Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Lower Carniola and is now included in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region.[3]

A small 18th-century chapel-shrine at the crossroads in the centre of the settlement is dedicated to Saint Roch.[4]

The Slovene writer, political activist, playwright, and critic Fran Levstik was born in the village in 1831. A commemorative plaque was unveiled in 1889 on what remains of the house in which he was born. In 1987 a bronze bust was also placed nearby.[5]
