Prekmurje is a geographically, linguistically, culturally and ethnically defined region settled by Slovenes and lying between the Mura River in Slovenia and the Rába Valley in the most western part of Hungary
Prekmurje property has become increasingly popular with the overseas buyer, especially with other Europen buyers, who favour the rolling hills, vineyards, orchards and Thermal Spas the region offers.
Goricko Regional Park has been a particular favourite in this region, a beautiful protected park area with some of the prettiest views of the area.
What not so long ago was called backwardness has turned out to be an advantage. Vineyards, orchards, meadows and fields overgrown with various cultivated crops are scattered like a mosaic and are harmoniously interwoven with and complement the settlements, villages and individual farms. Together they form a unique appearance and also a unique people. Since the soil was not very fertile, the modesty and wisdom of prudent exploitation of soil, sun and rainfall were required. Humans and nature have lived here in symbiosis for centuries, and together they form a varied cultural landscape. There is still enough space for numerous animals and plants, and according to tradition, almost every farmer has at least a small vineyard where he produces “his own” wine.
Even in the Middle Ages they were already famous for their fruits and orchards with tall-trunk trees, with several hundred kinds of fruits which still grow today. In some places the old rustic architecture is still preserved as well as some crafts which have otherwise already disappeared. This harmonious picture invites one to take a walk among the “gorice”, along streams and across meadows, along ridges and through forests, or go for a drive over the slightly sloping hillsides. The interested visitor will be welcomed by old mills, old thatched-roofed farms, numerous Protestant and Catholic churches as well as the largest castle in Slovenia, which has as many rooms as there are days in a year.
