The cuisine of eastern Slovenia in Pomurska is already strongly influenced by the neighboring country, Hungary. Here you can feast on every spicy dish and goulash and enjoy an authentic taste of the hearty Slovenian cuisine. For dessert, it is typical of the country to serve Prekmurska gibanica, which is a layered cake with poppy seeds, walnuts, apples, raisins and ricotta filling. In addition, you can treat yourself to traditional plum brandy, sljivovica.
The Pomurska region of Slovenia is mainly known for its thermal baths and spas. Special highlights include the Natural Health Spa Radenci, which boasts a 120-year-old tradition and its famous mineral water; the Terme 3000 with numerous water attractions; and the popular Thermal Riviera that has a water area of over 5500 m². The complex is beautifully situated in the lovely town of Moravske Toplice and well worth a visit during your stay in our self-catering Slovenia accommodation. It is filled with saunas and fitness facilities, swimming pools, a fountain, a waterfall and an artificial lake, making it the perfect place to relax and unwind during your holiday.
Worth seeing without a doubt are the wine routes to Lendava on the border with Hungary. The entire region is mostly flat and therefore perfect for cycling. If you enjoy being active and exploring the local natural surrounding during your self-catering holidays, then our Slovenia accommodation in Pomurska might just be the right choice for you!
