Lenti Things to Do
That is what Lenti is known for, in eastern Slovenia at least
Its existence so near the Slovenian and Austrian borders, and the cheaper prices in Hungary, meant and still means that many people travel there for shopping, for clothes in particular.
So for a small town you will find an amazing range of shops, many selling clothes, shoes, handbags............but also some selling linen and household goods (and ordinary shops too, of course).
Although the Hungarian currency is forints many shops and traders accept euros. They will do a fair conversion:it is in their interests to do so, for their custom argely comes from countries with the euro as currency.
I was told that range and quality was not as good as it once was, and prices higher, but this is inevitable I think.
I still managed to find one or two nice things at good prices, would have bought more if I had space in my case (I didn't) and enjoyed browsing the shops and market stalls (there is a market most days).Related to:

Getting there and Away
There is no train station in Lenti although there is in the nearby village or Redics, there are no international trains from there though. Buses link Lenti and Zalaegerseg in 30-45 minutes but there are no international buses. The nearest village on the Slovenian side is Lendava about 15km away.Related to:
