The name Logatec is of Celtic origin, probably derived from Celtic *longatis ‘ferryman, boatman’, from the Proto-Celtic word *longā ‘ship’, thus meaning ‘ferrymen’s settlement’. The name became Longaticum in Latin, which was borrowed into Slavic as *Lǫgatьcь.

History

Logatec Castle

The earliest mentions of the settlement are from Roman times (Roman way station Mansio Longatico). The vicinity of trade routes between the interior and the coast has always played an important part in the region. First the Roman road from Aquileia to Emona, and later the road to Trieste and the Southern Railway. Before the construction of railway line, the majority of the population made a living as teamsters.

The town of Logatec was formed by combining a number of former villages: Blekova Vas , Brod, Cerkovska Vas, Čevica, Dolenja Vas, Dolenji Logatec
Gorenja Vas, Gorenji Logatec, Mandrge, Martinj Hrib.

Churches

Because Logatec is made of what were originally separate settlements, there are a number of churches in what is now the town. The parish church is in the Dolenji Logatec area and is dedicated to Saint Nicholas. It was first mentioned in written documents dating to 1526. From 1795 to 1803 a new church was built on the site. The church in the Čevica area is dedicated to Saint Joseph, and in Gorenji Logatec to the Virgin Mary.
