St. Oswald's Church

The local church is dedicated to Saint Oswald (Slovene: sveti Ožbolt) and belongs to the Parish of Ponikva. It was built between 1735 and 1736 on the site of a 16th-century building. It was remodelled in 1856.[3]

The Slovene bishop, author, and poet Anton Martin Slomšek was born in the hamlet of Slom in the settlement in 1800. A memorial room is set up in the house where he was born.[4] A memorial plaque was installed in 1877 on the wall at the initiative of the priest Davorin Trstenjak.
