Rakitnik (pronounced [ɾaˈkiːtnik]; Italian: Rachiteni) is a village settlement south of Postojna in the Inner Carniola region of Slovenia.[2]

The Postojna Airfield, sometimes also referred to as the Rakitnik Airfield, a grass-covered sports airfield, is located just north of the settlement.[3]

The local church is dedicated to the Betrothal of Mary and belongs to the Parish of Matenja Vas.[4]
