Sun and Wine

As you wander by bicycle over hills overgrown with vines and among cottages and tourist farms, you are sure to be enchanted. You’ll gather new strength as you relax on beautiful sunny terraces from where your view extends off seemingly forever and conjures up wonders that only Pomurje’s flatland vineyards can offer.

You can visit the places where the domestically and internationally renowned wines are produced. Amidst an experience of local culinary tradition, you may be able to discover some of the local production secrets from the producers themselves. The secrets will be worth remembering!

Particularly of interest:
In the past, gibanica (both from Prlekija and Prekmurje) was eaten on its own, so it is only mildly sweetened. It was considered as a special festive meal and prepared only during significant celebrations.

Grkaveščak – Gornji Koncovčak – Sv. Martin na Muri – Marof – Mursko Središče – Lendava – Lendavske gorice

Particularly of interest:
The Lendava harvest is a traditional tourist-ethnologic event that for decades has brought a good atmosphere to the city during the first half of every September. Each year, the thousand head parade involves displays of local tradition, a folklore programme, a village marketplace, a beef goulash cooking competition, a wine festival, sports games and also accompanying entertainment.

Stage 5

Lendava – Cmurek

Particularly of interest:
Although the Mura region is known for being “flat”, that is not always the case. The Kapelski vrh peak in the Radgonsko-Kapelske gorice hills rises to 312 metres and the neighbouring hills are not far behind it.
