GeographyEdit

Brod lies on a side road in the middle of meadows southeast of Črnuče and north of the Sava River.[1]

NameEdit

Places named Brod are generally derived from the Slovene common noun brod 'ford' or 'ferry',[4] referring to a place where a river was crossed. However, in this case the name is derived from the common noun prod 'gravel, stones carried and deposited by water', referring to the terrain. Old maps show that the Sava River formerly flowed closer to the village (but lacked a ferry),[5] and the Jarše Gravel Bank (Slovene: Jarški prod) south of the village is labeled Jarski brod on a 1900 map.[6]

HistoryEdit

In 1900, Brod had a population of only 17 people living in four houses.[7] Brod was annexed by the village of Ježa in 1952, ending its existence as an independent settlement. Ježa itself was annexed by the city of Ljubljana in 1980.[8]
