Ženjak (pronounced [ˈʒeːnjak]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Benedikt in northeastern Slovenia. The area was part of the traditional region of Styria. The municipality is now included in the Drava Statistical Region.[2]

In 1811, a hoard of 26 Early Iron Age bronze Negau helmets was discovered in the nearby woods.[3] The village of Ženjak was of great interest to German archaeologists during the Nazi period and was briefly renamed Harigast during World War II.
