Gorica (pronounced [ɡɔˈɾiːtsa]) is a village south of Drnovo in the Municipality of Krško in eastern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of Lower Carniola. It is now included in the Lower Sava Statistical Region.[2]

The local church is dedicated to Saint Paul and belongs to the Parish of Leskovec pri Krškem. It has a rectangular Romanesque nave which was extended in the 18th century when a vaulted sanctuary was added.[3]

A number of Roman graves and an aedicula have been found in the area, indicating the southern extent of the nearby Nevidonium necropolis. Nearby a Roman potter's kiln was also uncovered.[4]
