Parish Church of St. Nicholas Murska Sobota

 

The Parish Church of St. Nicholas Murska Sobota, dedicated to St. Nicholas (Miklavž), is said to be located on the location of a Roman pagan temple from 2nd and 3rd centuries, right next to a cemetery. At least according to the legends and records dating back to 1297. This parish church will astound you with double-layered paintings in the interior. According to many locals, the small hill on which the church is built is the most beautiful and highest part of Murska Sobota. See for yourself if this is true and enjoy the serenity created by the richly decorated interior with painted windows, entering through the main entrance, above which lies a semi-circular outline with a stylized wreath, and the façade is adorned by Szápáry’s coat of arms (formerly the owner of Murska Sobota Castle, located in the city park). If you arrive at the right time of worship, you will hear the chimes of the 60m high bell and the sound of mighty organs.
