DAY 3: Island of love
After breakfast we drive to the typical Pannonian village on the Mur. Lovers of natural and cultural heritage will get their money's worth on the "Island of Love". For centuries, thanks to the inexhaustible power of the water, the large wheels of the ship's mill turned on the Mur. Built according to the principle of a houseboat, the entire mill operation is located on a floating platform. The mill presents us with the whole operation and in the bank house we can visit the exhibition Büjraštvo - Bank Reinforcement on the Mura River. After a trip by boat, we are invited to a traditional lunch.
DAY 4: Jeruzalem Wine Route
Today we will be enchanted by the nature along and below the Jeruzalem Wine Route. The heart opens when you look over the terraced vineyards. During a wine tasting at the famous winemaker
we learn that with this type of wine cultivation, compared to vertical row planting, approx. 25% fewer vines are exposed on the same area, this cultivation method is also protected here, and the best wines of the region are tasted. A traditional snack is of course included.
DAY 5: Journey home
