Travel to Spodnja Šiška

Spodnja Šiška (pronounced [ˈspoːdnja ˈʃiːʃka]; German: Unterschischka) is a formerly independent settlement in the northwest part of the capital Ljubljana in central Slovenia. It is part of the traditional region of Upper Carniola and is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Slovenia Statistical Region.

The name Spodnja Šiška literally means 'lower Šiška', distinguishing the settlement from neighboring Zgornja Šiška (literally, 'upper Šiška'). The name Šiška was attested in 1308 as ze Cheis (and as Cheysse in 1330 and pey Keysk in 1331). The name is derived from *Hiška, a diminutive of the common noun hiša 'house'. The phonological change of H- > Š- may be due to Upper Carniolan palatalization, discontinuous assimilation, or both. The semantic motivation of the name is attributed to a single small house that originally stood in the settlement. In the past the German name was Unterschischka.
