Sveti Vid (pronounced [ˈsʋeːti ˈʋiːt]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Vuzenica in northern Slovenia. It lies on the right bank of the Drava River and extends south into the Pohorje Hills. The area was traditionally part of Styria. It is now included in the Carinthia Statistical Region.[2]

The local parish church from which the settlement gets its name is dedicated to Saint Vitus (Slovene: sveti Vid) and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It was built in the early 15th century.[3]
