Prekmurje is geographically and to an extent culturally distinct from the rest of the country, with a strong Hungarian influence and some of the best cuisine in the country. It maintains certain specific linguistic, cultural and religious features that differentiate it from other Slovenian traditional regions. It consists mostly of tranquil flat agricultural land dotted with pretty villages, vineyards and churches and it is far from boring! From the last working floating mills on the Mura River to a state-of-the-art winery, this rural, lesser-travelled district throws up plenty of surprises.

Day 1

DAY TRIP PLAN

With the watchtower Vinarium Lendava you will be able to see the landscapes of 4 different countries at once. The tower, standing 53.3 meters tall, offers an incredible 360° view of the colorful landscape that stretches from the settlement of Lendavske Gorice all the way to the river basin of Mura, and encompasses a wonderful view of the plains and hills of Slovenia, Hungary, Croatia, and Austria.

Next stop at Ocean Orchids is perfect for orchids and nature lovers as it could be described as a piece of the Tropical rainforest, where it's always Summer. They offer a 350 square metres of ''jungle'' with over 900 exotic plants about one hundred different species. Alongside that, you are able to take a walk in a miniature world of tropics in their Tropical Garden, which is spread out on 1.500 m2. Next stop is Filovci, a small village that is well known for its pottery. We will visit an open-air museum of pottery occupying 1000 m2 of land. In addition, on your request, we can arrange for you to be in a pottery workshop and put your skills to the test. In Bogojina, we visit the church, work of the renowned Slovenian architect Plečnik. The locals call the distinctive building White Dove (bela golobica). Inside, the ceiling is adorned with pottery from the surrounding area. The Passero estate offers a charming mix of comfortable holidays, homeliness and cuisine. Visit their winery, where excellent and award-winning wines are produced, a renowned gourmet corner, where you can sample original retashes, homemade bread, meats, spreads, and their award-winning wines. As of recently their offer has expanded into country chocolateire Passero with high quality chocolate tablets and pralines. As the Prekmurje Region is famous for ''bograč'' goulash, we take time and taste it at local restaurant. The rich cuisine of Prekmurje offers famously delicious Prekmurska Gibanica and we will have the pleasure of trying it. We continue our trip to Babič Mill on the Mura River, a combined floating mill and the only facility of its kind in Slovenia still operating today. A special feature is an external water wheel, mounted on one of two boats, driven by a river stream. Island of Love Mill - this mill was purpose-built in the mid-1990s to preserve the region's mill heritage. You can tour the small museum here and take a ride across the Mura River on the kumpi (traditional ferry worked by pulley). The island is very well known due to its beauty and untouched nature. Return to the hotel in the late afternoon.
