"A land as beautiful as a beautiful dream – my homeland down there ..." are words written a hundred years ago by Fran Ksaver Meško, one of the most notable people having roots in our region. We are a part of Prlekija, the land of warm, open people. We know how to live, rejoice―and cry as well, we are generous and gregarious, with an innate sense of humour and benevolence.

The Saint Martin's celebration

The Saint Martin's celebration

The grape harvest ends in October and then, in the first days of November, our towns and villages come alive. For us the St. Martin’s celebration is the largest local holiday, linked with tradition, winegrowing and winemaking, but also linked with the gratitude and happines over everything we grew and experienced through the whole year. It is wonderful that we can share this happiness with you, the visitors from near and far. We will show you our customs, which are full of humor, and you will get to know our temperament, which we inherited from our forebears and which shapes us profoundly.
