Trlično (pronounced [təɾˈliːtʃnɔ]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Rogatec in eastern Slovenia. It is a dispersed settlement that stretches along the border with Croatia east of Dobovec pri Rogatcu. The entire Rogatec area traditionally belonged to the Styria region. It is now included in the Savinja Statistical Region.[2]

Mass grave[edit]

Trlično is the site of a mass grave from the end of the Second World War. The Trlično Mass Grave (Slovene: Grobišče Trlično) is located along Sotla Creek, 300 m east of the border crossing at Dobovec pri Rogatcu. It contains the remains of several dozen Croatians, and perhaps also Banat Swabians, that were killed in May 1945.[3]
