The Ščavnica (German: Stainz) is a 56 km-long river in Lower Styria, Slovenia. It sources near Zgornja Velka and flows along Slovenske gorice towards southeast. It passes the castle of Negova, Sveti Jurij ob Ščavnici and traverses the lake of Gajševci and the town Ljutomer and finally joins Mura River in Razkrižje.
The Ščavnica is one of the most heavily polluted rivers in Slovenia.
