Mereče (pronounced [mɛˈɾeːtʃɛ]; Italian: Merecce) is a small village north of Ilirska Bistrica in the Inner Carniola region of Slovenia.[2]

Unmarked grave[edit]

Mereče is the site of an unmarked grave from the end of the Second World War. The Railroad Bridge Grave (Slovene: Grob pri železniškem mostu) is located on the east side of the railroad underpass, by a bus turnaround point, and contains the remains of a German soldier from the 97th Corps that fell at the beginning of May 1945.[3]


The local church in the settlement is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and belongs to the Parish of Ilirska Bistrica .[4]
