Izlake (pronounced [iˈzlaːkɛ]; German: Islak) is a settlement in the Municipality of Zagorje ob Savi in the Central Sava Valley, central Slovenia. The area is part of the traditional region of Upper Carniola. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Central Sava Statistical Region.
Izlake is best known for the currently (as of July 2010) defunct Medijske Toplice thermal baths and has been the tourism centre of the region. Other attractions include mostly outdoor activities such as hiking to surrounding peaks as well as some cultural heritage sights, most notably Medija Castle, where the renowned Slovene polymath Johann Weikhard von Valvasor spent his childhood and is most likely buried in the family tomb.
