Welcome to Jeruzalem in Slovenia!
Yes, you did read it correctly! There is a place in Slovenia called Jeruzalem.
We are talking about a small settlement in the north-eastern part of the country best known for its endless vineyards and breath-taking panoramic views over the church towers and scattered vineyard cottages.
Hidden, but it hides best holiday pleasures
Without doubt, Jeruzalem wine region is among the rare authentic hidden gems of Europe. It’s a secluded setting far away from tourist crowds. Scenic vineyard hills will overwhelm any visitor looking for a top value food and wine tasting experience.
Here you can rent a traditional Slovenian vineyard cottage and discover your favourite wines in a private wine cellar.
This is a place where unique flavours of Central European cuisine come together. A glass of sweet Traminer wine or late harvest Muscat, with a warm cottage cheese dessert at the end.
You can be active, too!
This part of Slovenia is also perfect for active vacations. From cycling, adventure mountain biking, Mura river rafting and Drava river swimming, to exploring the rich wildlife.
In the valley you will find operating mills floating on the Mura river, selling fresh buckwheat and corn flour. And in the hills you will admire wooden wind rattles, used by local winemakers to protect their harvest from birds.
Staying in a vineyard Jeruzalem house
By foot or on a bike, picturesque landscape of Slovenia’s Pomurje region, part of which is Jeruzalem, welcome visitors . The huts at the top of the hills offer amazing views of the green terraces and golden corn fields in the Pannonian Basin.
If you are looking for a break from a predictable holiday experience, booking a stay here is a pretty amazing idea.
