Brda (pronounced [ˈbəɾda]) is a settlement in the City Municipality of Slovenj Gradec in northern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of Styria, the entire municipality is now included in the Carinthia Statistical Region.[2]

Two churches in the settlement are dedicated to Saint Andrew and Mary Magdalene and belong to the Parish of Šmartno pri Slovenj Gradcu. The former dates to the late 15th century and the latter was built in the 16th century on the site of a Romanesque building.[3]
