Prekmurje

Prekmurje is geographically and culturally very different from the rest of the country. With a strong historical Hungarian influence and geographical difference, Prekmurje developed some of the best cuisines 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-traveled district throws up plenty of surprises.

We will visit the oil mill of the Kocbek family, which has been producing oil from selected and refined seeds with at least 98% purity according to the natural process and without added dyes and antioxidants since 1929. Their specialty is cold-pressed oil, especially cold-pressed pumpkin oil. We will visit the oil mill and learn about the process of oil making and chocolate production. We will taste four types of oil, spreads, pastries, and chocolate, which contain pumpkin oil and pumpkin seeds. We'll continue to the village of Filovci in Prekmurje, which was established as an institution in 2005 to preserve the authentic craft of making black ceramics. The craft tradition was practiced by almost every home in the past, but today only one family is engaged in this tradition. We will visit Lončar's house with a 20th-century exhibition of  Philistine potters and the House of Culinary Arts with one of the last working digging kilns for reduction pottery burning. We will be present at the potter's work, it will also be possible to buy souvenirs. Then we will make a short stop by the lake, which is surrounded by beautiful beech forests and is part of the Landscape Park Goričko - Bukovniško Lake. In the vicinity of the lake, dowsers and bioenergetics have discovered many healing points of beneficial terrestrial radiation. Accompanied by a local guide, we will walk along the lake and stop at two energy points. We continue our drive towards Bogojina, where an excellent bograč with a glass of wine will be waiting for us at the Puhan tourist farm. After lunch, we will visit the Church of the Assumption, the Roman Catholic Church, which was transformed and extended in 1925 according to the plans of Jože Plečnik. Inside the church, there is a wooden ceiling decorated with wooden ornaments by local potters. We'll continue to the settlement of Grad, which lies in the western part of Goričko. On the hill above the village, we will see the castle of the same name as the settlement itself. It is one of the most extensive castle architectures of the 17th and 18th centuries. A tour of the interior of the Castle. We continue our drive to Radenci and stop at the famous wine cellar Kapela, where top-quality wines have been produced since 1921. They will introduce us to the company and show us the wine cellar. In the tasting hall, we will be able to try wines and Kapelska champagne with bread and cheese. The last will be the drive to Gornja Radgona where we'll have dinner in the pizzeria and brewery Kostanj.
