Grosuplje is a town in central Slovenia. It is the seat of the Municipality of Grosuplje. It lies just south of the capital Ljubljana in the traditional region of Lower Carniola. It is now included in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region.NameGrosuplje was first attested in written sources in 1136 as Groslupp . The settlement is known as Grasuple in the local dialect. The etymological origin of the name is unclear. One theory derives it from *Graslupoje —literally, 'wet ', from the adjective *graslupъ. Another theory derives the name from Lombard *grasslauffja 'rapids' but is undermined by the lack of fast-flowing water in the area. Yet another theory derives it from the hypothetical Lombard name *Graslupus borrowed into Slavic as *Groslupъ, whereby *Groslupľe selo would literally mean 'Groslupъ's village'. In the past the German name was Großlupp.Mass graveGrosuplje is the site of a mass grave associated with the Second World War. The Koščak Hill Mass Grave (Grobišče Koščakov hrib) is located in the northern part of the town, on Koščak Hill—also known as Brinje Hill (Brinjski hrib). It contains the remains of 15 anticommunist militia members, mostly from the Dobrepolje karst polje, that were held as prisoners of war and murdered between 26 and 28 October 1943.ChurchThe parish church in the settlement is dedicated to Saint Michael and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Ljubljana. It was built in 1980 at a site close to an older building dedicated to the same saint.
