The far northeast of Slovenia, across the river Mura, is divided to the northern hilly region called Goričko and the flat landscapes of Ravensko (the flatlands) and Dolinsko (the lowlands). This area was once covered by the Pannonian Sea, which left fertile soil with excellent conditions for farming. Cuisine, hot springs, and young, curious and very hospitable locals create excellent conditions for enjoyment of those who want to live the good life.
Immediately after arriving to the hotel you will sense the warmth of the locals. Their kind words and warm smile will open doors to the wonderful three-day indulgence. Exploring the surrounding you will discover many interesting things, while relaxing moments by the hotel pool or at the wellness will rest your body. The region offers a lot, from the floating mill on the river Mura and the island of love, the largest baroque castle in Slovenia, to architectural masterpieces of Jože Plečnik. In the afternoon or in the evening you will drive not far to the restaurant Rajh, where you will be served a 5-course tasting menu. On the third day you can go swimming or perhaps visit a local attraction on your way home, such as the Vinarium tower or the Expano adventure park in Murska Sobota. You can also opt to explore the beautiful hills of Jeruzalem and prolong the culinary experience.
