Murska Sobota is the business and economic center of the region along the Mura river.
“In the Middle ages, its urban development was dictated by roads that connected the German lands to Ogrska. The cultural and artistic image of Murska Sobota is maintained by its cultural establishments: the Regional museum, the Gallery, the Regional library and the Association of cultural societies. The tourist trade is enriched by events such as the Sobota days, the aero-meeting, Theresa’s fair and Nicholas’s fair.” (source: sloveniaholidays.com)
