Podsreda (pronounced [pɔˈtsɾeːda]; German: Hörberg) is a village in the Municipality of Kozje in eastern Slovenia. It is located near the Croatian border, in the traditional region of Styria. It is known for its market, which takes place every Sunday, and for Podsreda Castle, located above the village itself.
Podsreda Castle is a castle south of the main settlement. It dates to around 1150 and is probably the best-preserved example of secular Romanesque architecture in Slovenia. It features a typical 12th-century defensive tower (keep), a Romanesque chapel, and two wings from about the same period. The orderly, rectangular plan is also typical of the late Romanesque period.
The Yugoslav Communist leader Josip Broz Tito spent part of his childhood in Podsreda.
