    Filovci

    by olja1234 Written May 7, 2012

    In our day plan there were many more places to visit and our next stop over was settlement Filovci, well known for pottery. We were strolling around and very soon Mr. Drago joined us. He unlocked the door of an old house where pottery is displayed for viewing and also for selling. Biba and Silva purchased special pans for baking chickens. They are trying to buy organic chicken now, and as I know, unsuccessfully so far. We didn’t rush, Mr.Drago had a lot of time, it was Sunday Morning, and he showed us over the ancient thached roof houses in the open air museum.
    The entire Prekmurje region is known for quality pottery, but the finest goods come from Filovci. A specialty of Prekmurje pottery is black ceramics which uses a special firing method and no glazing. A special semi-globe shaped oven with seven to eight chimneys is required for this firing method. Today, black ceramics are only produced in Filovci. Even there less and less as Mr.Drago told us.
    The spindles now run on electricity, but the masters of Filovci still produce excellent products that are not only functional, but also decorative.

    Bogojina

    by olja1234 Updated May 7, 2012

    It was peaceful Sunday morning, villages we were passing by were quiet, people were in churches or at home and our next halt was a settlement Bogojina, .known for the church one of the most interesting examples of architecture of the first half of the 20th century and the most famous sanctuary of Prekmurje.(designed by architect Jože Plečnik) It is located on the slope above the settlement of Bogojina. . Beside the old main entrance the artist placed a dominant cylindrical tower, a bell tower with typical Plečnik artistic forms. At the top of the cylinder is a viewing terrace and at its edge there is a small additional tower which appears again at the end of the old church.

    Martjanci

    Next morning we first took a bathe in warm pool and after breakfast we drove off. Nearby, just a couple of kilometers from Moravske toplice there is another interesting village Martjanci. The village is known for its parish church dedicated to Saint Martin from who the village got its name. Church was built in 14th century. The presbytery is vaulted and covered in wall paintings painted by local artist Johannes Aquila. An interesting detail is his self- portrait. We were lucky, because at the time we visited the church, the mass was just to begin and the Priest gave us some information and explanations about the church.

    According to itinerary, hamlet Selo, was the last one to be visited the first day of our trip. The village is situated on the eastern part of Goričko. The place of interest which allures visitors is a chapel (rotunda) of St. Nicolas (from XIII century). The center of Selo is Betlehem with Evangelical church. A kind lady who had the key to unlock the Chapel accompanied us to get there and told us interesting facts.

    Castle - Grad na Gorickem

    by olja1234 Written May 7, 2012

    We continued our travelling towards the largest castle in Slovenia- Castle – Grad na Goričkem. Grad is an extended settlement situated in the western part of Goričko. The settlement was named by the castle. The castle was economic and political center of this region. Until 1958 the settlement was named “Gornja Lendava” At your first sight, the castle doesn’t seem the largest, but when you enter, you can see real size and the grandeur of the castle. Some parts of the castle are renovated, but a huge construction works are still held. If castle is ever restored (it requires huge amounts of money) it will be an incredible tourist spot worth visiting. Castle is situated in marvelous spot. I think, Lords of the castles have known pretty well, where to build their luxurious homes.

    Following the plan, we proceeded to Radenci. This was a bit longer stop started with coffee break in pleasant cafe. After that we were ready to take a stroll through the park. Park is wonderful and after a month or so it will be even more beautiful.
    Radenci lies in north-eastern Slovenia, in a region of thermal and mineral springs and vineyards. It dated from 15th century and became famous as a health resort in 1833, when Karel Henn discovered an exploitable mineral water spring there. The mineral water and health resort became soon famous throughout the world. Many visitors are attracted here by the favorable climate and the medicinal water with the "three hearts" label.

    each era has its statues

    by picek Written Jan 17, 2011
    the solid structure
    1 more image

    In the park, across the street off the main post office and NLB bank, there's statue of Red Army officer and a partisan, sheltered by the large solid construction, a typical real-socialist structure - it was a gift from Soviet union whose governement donated it to town of Murska Sobota after the WWII. Other 'ornaments' include: two cannons by the side and a star above them all. The partisan and Red army officer are considered brothers who fought against the nazi enemy and the inscription between them says: 'Eternal glory to the heroes, whom lost life in the struggle for freedom and independence of brotherly Soviet Union and Jugoslavija.' The script is both Russian and Slovenian; it's the central place in Sobota that this monument takes place.

    Lendava at the border triangle

    by himalia11 Updated Sep 14, 2005
    View from the hill at Lendava

    Lendava is found in the most eastern part of Slovenia close to the border with Hungary. In this part of Slovenia, lots of signs are also in Hungarian as this is one of the official languages there.
    There’s a castle in Lendava, and from the hill you have a great view on Slovenia, Hungary (the hilly part) and Croatia (the flat part). Also somewhere in the distance you can see Austria, so there are 4 countries that you can see! There’s a little church with a cemetery from which we had this fantastic view, you can reach it if you take the small street up the hill at the church in Lendava.

    Ascencsion church in Bogojina

    by himalia11 Updated Sep 14, 2005

    Ascension church

    In Bogojina, you'll find a very interesting church which was designed by Jože Plecnik, a well-known Slovenian architect. Usually I cannot remember any architect names, but I've seen so much remarkable objects in Slovenia which were designed by him that I probably won't forget him! The church in Bogojina was build 1924 and already attracts ones attention from far, with its tower with the columns. Inside, Plecnik has included local pottery, for example pottery plates at the ceiling. Very interesting!

    In case you are interested in pottery: in the neighbour village Filovci, there's a pottery where you also can get the famous black pottery, which is made black with soot.

    Rotunda in Selo

    Rotunda in Selo

    This little round church was built in the 13th century. It’s the only rotunda in this region, however some more can be found in Hungary. The church has lots of nice frescos which are quite well preserved, unfortunately you are not allowed to go into the church so you can only see them through a grille.
    There’s a little tourist office and a small parking, and there’s no admission.
