Skaručna (German: Skarutschna)[2] is a village in the Municipality of Vodice in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia.[3]

The local church is dedicated to Saint Lucy and was built between 1662 and 1665. It was a popular pilgrimage church with people with a variety of eye diseases because Saint Lucy is considered the patron saint of the blind.[4]
