Rečica ob Savinji (pronounced [ɾɛˈtʃiːtsa ɔp saˈʋiːnji]) is a town and a municipality in Slovenia. It belonged to the historical region of Styria and is now included in the Savinja Statistical Region. It was created as an independent municipality in 2006. Before that it was part of the Municipality of Mozirje.[2]

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Cantius and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Celje. It was built in the mid-17th century on the foundations of a 12th-century church. Various adaptations were made at the end of the 18th and 19th centuries.[3]
