Kozjak nad Pesnico (pronounced [kɔˈzjaːk nat ˈpeːsnitsɔ]) is a dispersed settlement in the Municipality of Kungota in the western part of the Slovenian Hills (Slovene: Slovenske gorice) in northeastern Slovenia.[2]

Name[edit]

The name of the settlement was changed from Kozjak to Kozjak nad Pesnico in 1955.[3]

Cultural heritage[edit]

There are two mansions in the settlement. Pahta Mansion (Slovene: Graščina Pahta or Pahtejev Grad) was built in 1870 in the hills south of Zgornja Kungota. Lepi Dol Mansion, built in the Pesnica Valley, is an early 18th-century Baroque mansion on the site of an earlier building. It was renovated in a Neoclassical style in the 19th century.[4]
