In the northernmost part of Croatia, between the Drava and Mura, with green hills and rich plains, there is a charming little place called Medjimurje. Both simple and splendid, its uniqueness has always amazed people and it proudly bears the name of „Cvjetnjak Hrvatske“ (Croatia’s flower garden). Just a step away from major European cities, the perfect combination of tradional and modern with a lot to offer has evolved from rich cultural-historical foundations. Not surprisingly the most densly populated area in Croatia is home to pozojs (dragons), the purest gold in the world which shines from river sandbars, excellent food accompanied by extraordinary wine. Whether you’re a traveller or a passerby, coming on your own or in a company, on business or holiday, you are bound to find what you’re looking for here.
Nature lovers will be particularly excited to enjoy the regional nature park between the Mura and Drava, floodplain forest along the Mura, Drava’s former river course, habitats of diverse flora and fauna, many of which are rare species (butterfly Scarce Large Blue, fish European mudminnow, plants black Small Pasque Flower and Snake’s Head) as well as many other valuable specimens of nature in Medjimurje.
