Tabor (pronounced [ˈtaːbɔɾ]) is a village in western Slovenia in the Municipality of Nova Gorica.[2] It is located on a small hill overlooking the Vipava Valley. The name comes from the Slovene term tabor, denoting a fortified church or village. The village was fortified in the 16th century as a defense against the Ottoman raids. Part of the fortifications are still visible today.

Tabor gravitates towards the village of Dornberk.
