St. Martin Church in Martjanci

Like the medieval cathedral, along the main road between Murska Sobota and Moravske Toplice, high above the low houses of the condensed settlement Martjanci, which the locals call Merčanci or Marčanci, stands the mighty Gothic St. Martin Church from the 14th century. The church’s bell tower, its height defying the high chestnut trees and linden trees around the church, warmly welcomes the villagers and visitors of the region to the divine service on Sundays. Those who respond, will be able to see magnificent murals in this church in Martjanci, one of which is the own image of the artist Janez Akvil, and is one of the oldest self-portraits in European art. Also magnificent is the mighty marble altar, which is the work of a renowned Slovenian architect Jože Plečnik and inspires visitors with a sense of peace and serenity.
