Poljane (Ĺ entvid District)

Poljane is a former settlement in central Slovenia in the northwest part of the capital Ljubljana. It belongs to the Šentvid District of the City Municipality of Ljubljana, it was part of the traditional region of Upper Carniola and is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region. Poljane consists of a cluster of houses on the east side of the railroad from Ljubljana to Jesenice; the name Poljane is derived from a plural form of the common noun poljana'large field'. It may be based on the demonym *Poľane derived from polje'field'. In the 1931 census, Poljane had 137 people living in 26 houses. By this time it was more or less a continuous built-up area with Šentvid; the Agrostroj Indos foundry operated in Poljane from 1936 onward casting ductile iron after the Second World War. After the war there was extensive construction in Poljane. Poljane was annexed by Šentvid in 1961. Poljane became part of Ljubljana when Šentvid was annexed by Ljubljana in 1974.
