Dolnji Lakoš (Hungarian: Alsólakos, Prekmurian Dolenji Lakoš, or Spoudnji Lakoš) is a village to the southwest of Lendava in the Prekmurje region of Slovenia.[2]

The local church in the settlement is dedicated to The Holy Cross and belongs to the Lendava Parish.[3]

Near the village is the site of the Bronze Age settlement Oloris, that was excavated in the 1980s. It was one of the most extensive excavations of a Bronze Age settlement in Slovenia. The archaeological evidence shows that the settlement was surrounded by an oak palisade. Postholes of the former dwellings clearly indicated an extensive and relatively dense settlement around a central courtyard with four hearths in the surrounding dwellings. There are dated artefacts and evidence of habitation from the late 14th and in the 13th century BC.[4] Finds from the excavation are on permanent display in Lendava Castle.[5]
