Medjimurje region, northern Croatia

Medjimurje, Croatia

Medjimurje (Međimurska županija, Muraköz in Hungarian) is a triangle-shaped county in the northernmost part of Croatia. In the western part of the county, there are slopes of Alpine foothills, while toward the east it touches the flat Pannonian plains. It shares borders with Slovenia and Hungary, with Austria just over the corner.The eastern limits of the county are near the town of Legrad. The closest cities are Varaždin, Koprivnica, Nagykanisza, Murska Sobota, Bjelovar, Maribor, and Graz, in all three states.

Wonderful landscapes and architecture (and some familiar-sounding town names )! The hills remind me of Slovenia's Dolenjska or Bela Krajina, but the Pannonian architectural influences also bring Prekmurje or even some recent pics of Slovakia to mind. Thanks for sharing it with us!

BTW, how does this region's level of economic development compare with other parts of Croatia?

I know that these town names sound familiar to you, it is one of regions where kajkavian dialect is spoken

Medjimurje is one of the healthiest counties in the country, well organized and known by very very hard working people, although by GDP it is ranked 8th of 21 counties in Croatia. What surprises me is that their average incomes are for 25 percent lower than in all other Croatian regions. Medjimurje has also built strong economical ties with their neighbours in Prekmurje and Stajerska (Slovenia), Hungary and southern Austria.

Very nice pics Bubach! This part of Croatia I think is also one of the most densely populated and of course has a good level of economic development and growth.

Sadly Austrians and Hungarians didn`t develop occupied territories like their own towns and cities. This way you have maybe one nice church and the rest is well...

This particular picture shows a street of a tiny town called Prelog that with its surrounding doesnt have more than 3000 inhabitants lol. So you cant expect tiny towns and little villages to have some magnificent palaces and stuff It's just a rural area. Anyway, there are hundreds and hundreds of churches in Medjimurje and a number of castles but thought it would be way too many pics to post here

yeah but even bigger towns look quite the same. I'd say only Zagreb is exception in those parts of Croatia (outside of Dalmatia).

Well...towns and cities of Dalmatia, Istria and Kvarner are quite different than continental Croatia, i agree, so we cant compare them to the rest of the country. Zagreb is an exception in the continental part only because of its size, all other towns in this particular area ( Zagreb county, Prigorje, Zagorje, Medjimurje) are very small, but very picturesque and charming including hilly and mountaineous landscape. Anyways i will open lots of threads on each region including Slavonia, Bilogora, Podravina, Gorski Kotar etc. so we can compare look of their towns and stuff
