Vič (pronounced [ˈʋiːtʃ]) is a village on the left bank of the Drava River in the Municipality of Dravograd in the Carinthia region in northern Slovenia, next to the border with Austria.[2]

The local church in the centre of the village is dedicated to Saint Leonard. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1493. The current building is a combination of a belfry built in 1528, an early 18th-century nave, and two later chapels. It belongs to the Parish of Dravograd.[3]
