Račeva (pronounced [ˈɾaːtʃɛʋa]) is a dispersed settlement in a valley of the same name southeast of Žiri in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. Račeva Creek runs along the valley and is a tributary of the Poljane Sora River (Slovene: Poljanska Sora).[2]

History[edit]

During the Second World War, the border between territory annexed to Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy ran along Račeva Creek. In 1941, the Germans demolished the water-powered Debenc Mill during demarcation of the border.[3]
