My family and I were selected to experience, live and share our highlights from the scouting trip in the Slovenian Prekmurje region. Our experience started when we registered at the lovely Panonian Village in Tešanovci.
The village features several beautiful homes built in the authentic old Slovenian style with plenty of space for games and entertainment for kids. The first impression of our trip started with the friendly local welcoming and quick organization for the two day-trips.
We first visited Bukovnica Lake, a beautiful area, nestled in the thick woods of Lendava region, which is home to the Dobrovnik Energy Park, with high-energy points scattered all over the place.
We continued to investigate the region by visiting the tallest tower in Slovenia, the Vinarium, by climbing the 240 stairs to the top and enjoying the view over the landscape.
One of the regional tourist attractions are the vineyards, so we stopped there to taste and enjoy some local wine and šunka (ham) at Posestvo Passero. We were welcomed by a very experienced local producer. The tasting finished with dark chocolate delight produced again by them.
Our day trip finished at Gostilna Marič, having tried outstanding local meals like bograč and ciganska pečenka and of course the famous local Prekmurje gibanica cake.
One day is not enough to visit and enjoy all the local beauties of Prekmurje, that is why we have already started making plans to come back to the region.
