Rakičan (pronounced [ɾaˈkiːtʃan]; Hungarian: Battyánfalva[2]) is a village in the Municipality of Murska Sobota in the Prekmurje region of Slovenia.[3]

There is a Baroque mansion known as Rakičan Castle west of the main settlement. It stands in a large park and was originally a 17th-century castle with defences that was remodelled in the 18th century.[4]
