Slivnica pri Celju (pronounced [ˈsliːu̯nica pɾi ˈtsɛːlju]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Šentjur in eastern Slovenia. The area is part of the historical Styria region. The municipality is now included in the Savinja Statistical Region.[2]

There are two churches in the settlement. The parish church is dedicated to Mary Magdalene and belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Celje. Of the original 16th-century church only the belfry remains. The rest of the building dates to the early 18th century. A second church, south of the settlement core, is dedicated to John the Baptist and dates to the late 17th century.[3]
