Kalobje (pronounced [ˈkaːlɔbjɛ]) is a village in the Municipality of Šentjur in eastern Slovenia. The area is part of the historical Styria region. The municipality is now included in the Savinja Statistical Region.[2]

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to the Holy Name of Mary and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Celje. It was originally a 16th-century building that was restyled in the 17th and 18th centuries.[3]

Kalobje is known for the Kalobje manuscript (Slovene: Kalobški rokopis), an important collection of Slovenian Baroque poetry.[4][5]
