|Role||Two-seat cabin monoplane|
|First flight||10 April 1947|
|Developed from||Zlin 381|
Although based on the Zlin 381, the Junak had side-by-side seating for two. It was a low-wing cantilever monoplane with a conventional tailwheel landing gear. It was powered by a nose-mounted 75 hp (56 kW) Praga D engine, although the prototype had a 57 hp (43 kW) Persy III engine. A three-seat variant, the Zlin 22M, was developed and two prototypes of a three/four-seat tourer variant, the Zlin 122, were built.
