This summer we invite you in sunny Murska Sobota

This small and tranquil Pannonian town of Murska Sobota lies in the far northeast of Slovenia. Defined by the beauty of the centuries-old trees in the city park and the abundance of green grass fields, the town truly deserves the title greenest city in Slovenia. With over 2000 sun hours in the Year, Murska Sobota is the 5th sunniest towns in Slovenia.  Proofs it’s long and interesting history are the old historical buildings in the town center and the castle of whom the foundations date back to the 13th century. The inclusion among three neighbouring countries with their different cultures and the almost love like fondness of the river Mura characterized our people with a uniqueness that is visible in every aspect of living, especially in the various events that we host, our local cuisine and the genuine hospitality and friendliness that we love to share with our guests.

The Sights
The small Pannonian town is marked by two religions and their churches, the Roman- Catholic Church and the Protestant Church, rising in front of the Victory monument, a symbol of the victory against fascism. From there you can take a stroll through the beautiful park and admire the renaissance castle amongst the old oaks that give witness to our history and heritage. The castle is now the residence to the regional museum with a fabulous permanent exhibition and the youth center MIKK that often organizes music concerts in the castle square intended for young people. The space between the old walls of the castle, underneath the star filled sky produces a magical atmosphere that makes every cultural event a highlight. Moving to the center of town to the Square of culture where cultural events during the summer take place next to the statue of the fabled Muse Erato and the Gallery Murska Sobota. The gallery exhibits a permanent collection of contemporary fine art of Pomurje, apart from organizing exhibitions of not only domestic artists but also guests from abroad. The European Triennial of Small-Scale Sculpture is a traditional event.  The surroundings of the town are full of fields of crops such as corn, grain, rapeseed, pumpkin and the narrow dusty trails among them are great for a relaxing walk. The river Mura is the essence that binds and connects the people and all living things in Pomurje.  Its banks are teeming with life but are also of soothing tranquillity. They provide the ideal place to just let go of your daily troubles and relax or actively engage in sports like fishing, kayaking, canoeing and rafting.  Tracking and cycling have dedicated marked cross-country routs. Moreover, one can indulge in panoramic hot air balloon flights, skydiving and horseback riding. You are invited to discover more of the beauty Murska Sobota can offer.
