Oplotnica (pronounced [ɔˈploːtnitsa]; German: Oplotnitz) is a small town and municipality in eastern Slovenia. It lies on the Oplotniščica River, a left tributary of the Dravinja River, to the north of Slovenske Konjice. The area was part of the traditional region of Styria and formerly part of Austria-Hungary. The municipality is now included in the Drava Statistical Region.[2]

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to John the Baptist and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It was built between 1895 and 1899.[3]
