This settlement in the south of the municipality of Šentjur takes its name from the numerous passes (preval or prevoj) in this hilly area forming part of the Kozjansko Hills. The settlement is reached by taking the regional road from Šentjur in the direction of Kozje. Interesting sights include the baroque church of St Anne, the farm in Straška Gorca with its well-preserved old farm buildings, and the hayrack where the brigand Guzaj was killed. This legendary brigand, who like Robin Hood robbed from the rich and gave to the poor, lives on in many folk tales. An organised walk along the Guzaj Trail takes place in early November, followed by an event called Grapes, Wine and Song. In early July, or by prior arrangement, it is possible to set off towards a far more distant destination – outer space – through the eye of the telescope at the astronomical observatory based in the local primary school. The Kosci Astronomical Society and the Prevorje Cultural Association jointly organise a "gathering under the stars" in July, an event which includes a talk on astronomy and the chance to observe the stars through a telescope.
