Črešnjevci (pronounced [ˈtʃreːʃnjɛu̯tsi]) is a dispersed settlement immediately south of Gornja Radgona in northeastern Slovenia.[2]

The Slovene author, linguist and beekeeper Peter Dajnko was born in the village in 1787.[3] The house in which he was born is a simple thatched farmhouse and now houses an ethnographic collection.[4]
