Murska Sobota Castle

Murska Sobota Castle 2009.jpg

Rebuilt in Renaissance style at the end of the 16th century on the foundations of a 13th-century fortification, the Murska Sobota Castle was restored in the mid-18th century. It stands on a flat piece of land in the middle of the town of Murska Sobota, in the axis of an extensive park, arranged in landscape style that stretches from the monument of the National Liberation War to the castle itself. The first floor of the castle has been occupied by the Murska Sobota Regional Museum since 1956. Nowadays it hosts also the MIKK Youth Information Cultural Club, KRIK Multimedia Centre Pomurje, and a restaurant. The festival hall is a popular venue for cultural events.

Bogenšperk Castle

In 1511 the Lords of Wagen began building Bogenšperk Castle as a replacement for their fortress at nearby Lichtenberg, which had become uninhabitable following an earthquake. The new castle was a Renaissance building with typical round towers. The castle reached its golden age at the end of the 17th century when Janez Vajkard (Johann Weichard) Valvasor (1641–1693) lived and worked there. After 1970 a systematic renovation of the castle began and today, thanks to Valvasor's heritage, it is one of the most important cultural monuments in Slovenia. Since 1998 the Bogenšperk Public Institute has managed the building.
