Gačnik (pronounced [ˈɡaːtʃnik]) is a settlement in the Municipality of Pesnica in northeastern Slovenia. It lies in the western part of the Slovene Hills (Slovene: Slovenske gorice) in the valley of Gačnik Creek (Slovene: Gačniški potok), a minor tributary of the Pesnica River. The area was part of the traditional region of Styria. It is now included in the Drava Statistical Region.[2]

A small roadside chapel-shrine in the settlement dates to 1803.[3]
