Medvedjek (pronounced [mɛˈdʋeːdjɛk]; in older sources also Medvešček, German: Bärnberg) is a settlement east of Veliki Gaber in the Municipality of Trebnje in eastern Slovenia. The area is part of the historical region of Lower Carniola. The municipality is now included in the Southeast Slovenia Statistical Region.
On 28 June 1991 during the Slovenian Independence War a Yugoslav People's Army tank column came under attack at a truck barricade at Medvedjek. Six truck drivers were killed in an air raid that followed. In 1993 a monument to commemorate the events was unveiled at the site.
