Winner of the EDEN 2006/2007

Sveti Martin na Muri Municipality

The only remaining ship mill on Mura is a reminder of the rich milling tradition in Međimurje when there used to be around 20 similar mills. You can find out more about the life of a miller in the Miller’s House - the visitor’s centre, and feel the relaxing power of the river by riding on traditional rafts and wooden boats. Take the miller’s educational path and learn more about the flora and fauna, restore your energy along the spiral paths known as the love labyrinth and energy labyrinth and feel the unique atmosphere of life beside the river by cycling along the marked routes. 


Sveti Martin na Muri offers an entire world of healthy pleasures. Unspoiled nature, charming accommodation, excellent culinary offer based on healthy and locally produced groceries, over a 100-year old tradition of thermal baths and a modern, sports, wellness and spa offer by LifeClass Terma Sveti Martin, have made this region well known as an oasis of a healthy lifestyle and relaxation. 


Preserved natural beauty and cultural heritage of the village, fostering the traditions, promoting and managing the local tourist offer based on sustainable development are all reasons why the Sveti Martin na Muri Municipality won the title of the 2006/2007 European destination of excellence (EDEN) for the theme “Best emerging European rural destination of excellence”.
