Visit Međimurje

Natural heritage

Medjimurje has a rich variety of natural values, and any true expert and nature lover will be undoubtedly interested in protected natural areas. Regional park between the rivers Mura and Drava and landscape of the river Mura represent an interesting destination for hiking, taking photos and bird watching due to their exceptional biodiversity. Protected natural monument - wet meadow at the site of Bedekovićeve grabe (in the Sveti Juraj na Bregu municipality) is home to one of the most endangered European species, the admirable Scarce Large Blue butterfly. The Zrinski Park, park architecture monument in the centre of Čakovec, represents an architectural and vegetative composition of aesthetic, stylistic, artistic, cultural-historical and scientific value. The park, with its centuries-old trees, is a popular place for a stroll and relaxation. Other protected individual trees include English oak (Donji Vidovec), plane trees (Nedelišće and Sv. Urban), Wisteria sinensis (Čakovec), tulip tree (Vučetinec), maidenhair (ginkgo) tree (Donja Dubrava) and Magnolia lilioflora (Pribislavec) whose longevity testify to the force of nature.
