As far I lived in Murska Sobota, still I come there many times a year, and usually by train. This is probably best way to reach the city, especially after constructing new railroad to Hungary. Trains from Ljubljana are more or less recent, only problem is that they are usually late.
The role of Murska Sobota as a tourist town hasn't been emphasized enough. Two hotels: Diana with its hall swimming pool and recreational centre, and Zvezda, the swimming pool and recreational centre in Fazanarija, some tourist offices and more and more guest-houses can change this picture very soon, along with the rich cultural offer. The more so, because also the town surrounding offers numerous possibilities for making trips in the nature, visits of cultiral monuments and natural health resources.
Dont worry, Prekmurje have very beautiful surrounding and very kindnes people!!!
