Pečovnik (pronounced [pɛtʃɔu̯ˈniːk]) is a settlement on the left bank of the Savinja River in the City Municipality of Celje in eastern Slovenia. The area was traditionally part of the Styria region. It is now included with the rest of the municipality in the Savinja Statistical Region.[2]

The writer Alma Karlin lived the last years of her life and died in the village. Her house is now a small museum.[3]
