Šmartno pri Litiji is a town
and a municipality in central Slovenia. It is part of the traditional region of
Lower Carniola and is now included in the Central Slovenian statistical region.
The town itself is located 3 km southeast of Litija at the confluence of
three creeks: Reka Creek, Black Creek, and Kostrevnica Creek. The town of Litija outgrew the formerly
more important Šmartno when the Austrian Southern Railway was routed through
Litija. The name of the settlement was first attested in ecclesiastical
documents from 1135,
