In History

In times gone by, the water represented a key element of the settlement. Towns and smaller settlements always formed near sources of water and only later migrated into the area’s interior. Numerous archaeological remains near the cycle paths along the Mura and Drava are evidence of that fact. Many of the buildings are still standing including castles, mansions, city walls, churches and other similar structures.

Both past and recent history is much appreciated by the locals, as there are and continue to be more thematic museums, which, through the great energy and enthusiasm of their owners, ensure that the history will not be forgotten.
