Prekmurje is a lowland Pannonian region, which lies in the north-western part of Slovenia and borders with Austria and Hungary. Mura River feeds the mostly agricultural country, as can be seen in the rhythm and way of life. Throughout history, Prekmurje has been somewhat isolated from other Slovenian regions, both economically and politically, which is still reflected today.
The landscape and its people are carriers of extremely rich culinary cultural heritage: They still nurture old, almost forgotten recipes of autochthonous dishes, such as prekmurska gibanica, bograč, bujta repa, posolanka, ajdove zelvanke, retaš, bosman and many others.
The rich history and the area where different cultures met have provided numerous cultural monuments and landmarks that take visitors to almost forgotten time periods. In addition to archaeological sites and religious objects, the country is known primarily for its mills and the architecture of typical Prekmurje houses.
