Kališe (pronounced [kaˈliːʃɛ]; in older sources also Kališče,[2] German: Unterkalische, Oberkalische[2]) is a small dispersed settlement in the Municipality of Kamnik in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.

The local church, built on a small hill above the village, is dedicated to Saint Acacius[clarification needed] and is home to an important colony of the lesser horseshoe bat. The church itself is Gothic, dating to the second half of the 15th century, but parts of it were rebuilt on a number of occasions[3]
