This Mini Adventure is perfect for four legged friends as part of it is situated in the City Park which is an English style landscaped park with a pond and a playground, should you need a break from exploring. In the centre of the park, Sobota Castle can be found. It's an impressive 16th century building which houses the award winning Murska Sobota Regional Museum. An avenue lined with 200-year-old-trees leads you from here to the Evangelical Church. The mission then directs you on to the mighty Victory monument, and then into the hub of the city and to the market area which has seen traders come and go for many, many years.
