Josip Jurčič (4 March 1844 – 3 May 1881) was a Slovene writer and journalist. He was born in Muljava, Austrian Empire (now part of the municipality of Ivančna Gorica, Slovenia). He died from tuberculosis in Ljubljana.
Jurčič followed the literary program proposed by Fran Levstik and was one of the most influential Slovene romantic realists.
The 15.6 km (9.7 mi)-long Jurčič Trail (Slovene: Jurčičeva pot) from Višnja Gora (where he attended primary school; he also attended it in Krka) through Muljava to the source of the Krka River and Krka Cave is named after him. The house where he was born is now an open-air museum.
