Tirna (pronounced [ˈtiːɾna]) is a settlement west of Šentlambert in the Municipality of Zagorje ob Savi in central Slovenia. Its territory extends southwards right to the left bank of the Sava River. The area is part of the traditional region of Upper Carniola. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Sava Statistical Region.
Tirna is the site of a mass grave from the period immediately after the Second World War. The Blaž Cave Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Blažetova jama) is located about 1 km west of the settlement, along a forest road. It contains the remains of about 150 people from the prison in Litija that were murdered here in May, June, and July 1945.
