Only two hours drive from Zagreb, the northernmost and smallest Croatian county – Međimurje, has become a tourist mecca.
Someone said that the holy land is where the soil is bounded by water. Rivers. This area is like a paradise. Međimurje is surrounded by the Drava and the Mura rivers, and the song says, “how beautiful paradise it is.” Just because of that, most frequent visits to Međimurje are related to the Sveti Martin thermal spa, the famous wellness, and the SPA resort. That fact is not surprising. However, the tourist offer of Međimurje has increased significantly recently.
One of the most famous tourist attractions in Međimurje is Mlin na Muri (Mill over the Mura River, mlin in Croatian means mill). A romantic historical reminder of the mills on the Mura river from the beginning of the 20th century, when as many as 90 mills were located forty kilometers away, unfortunately, but expectedly, completely died out in the 1980s.
