Murska Sobota Castle
Explore the cultural heritage of Pomurje into one of the most beautifully preserved castle parks in Slovenia and step into the Renaissance mansion, Murska Sobota Castle in the town of Murska Sobota. A stroll through the extensive English-style park, home to two hundred-year-old hornbeam, oaks, linden trees and ash trees, will take you straight through the avenue to the eastern facade of the castle, which is distinguished by the famous Baroque portal with the Atlanteans. From the premises of the mansion from the second half of the 16th century, the most beautiful, late-Baroque illusionist manners of a fully painted castle lounge will take your breath away. Check out the magnificent rooms, which also house the Provincial Museum with a cultural and historical collection and a permanent art collection by a local painter, and indulge in imagination or tales about the castle and Count Szápáry, the former owner.
For those who want to wrap a romantic veil on a tour of Murska Sobota Castle, the former castle chapel houses a profane space for civil weddings. For the young and the young at heart, can attend events at Mladinski in Kulturni Klub MIKK (the regional youth and culture club), located on the ground floor of the mansion.
