Cezlak (pronounced [tsɛˈzlaːk]) is a small settlement on the southern slope of the Pohorje range in the Municipality of Slovenska Bistrica in northeastern Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Styria. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Drava Statistical Region.[2]

Since the beginning of 20th century a quarry of Granodiorite is operating there, once used mostly for roads and squares paving. There is a small roadside chapel in the settlement. It was built in 1898.[3]

The only known deposit of cizlakite (quartz monzogabbro; a green plutonic rock) in the world has been found near Cezlak.[4]
