Geocache Description:

Murska Sobota je središce Prekmurja in deseto najvecje mesto v Sloveniji. Kratek multi cache vam predstavi najpomembnejše znamenitosti.

Murska Sobota is the center of region Prekmurje and tenth largest city in Slovenia. This short multicache will show you the main sights.

Prva naselbina je verjetno obstajala že v 10. stoletju, ko so jo Madžari vkljucili v svojo državo. V 13. stoletju se omenja zemljišce Belmura (Notranja Mura). Murska Sobota je veckrat omenjena kot trg, kot mesto pa v letih 1366 in 1431. Ogrski kralj Matija Korvin je 1479 mestu podelil sejemske pravice. Zaradi sobotnih sejmov so naselju zaceli govoriti »Sobota«, kasneje pa so pristavili še pridevnik »murska«, po reki Muri. Soboško posestvo je leta 1687 kupil Peter Szapáry in 1690 s krajevnim pristankom postal lastnik Murske Sobote za »vecne case«, ki so trajali do konca 1. svetovne vojne.

The first settlement probably existed already in 10th century, when annexed to their state by Hungarians. In 13th century the area is mentioned as Belmura (Inner Mura). After that the settlement was several times mentioned as market town and as city in 1366 and 1431. In 1479, market rights were granted by Hungarian king Matthias Corvinus. Fairs were held on Saturdays so the city was called „Sobota“ (“Saturday”), later the adjective „Murska“ was added, after nearby river Mura. The estate “Sobota” was in1687 bought by Peter Szapáry, who in 1690 became the owner of Murska Sobota “for eternity”, that lasted until the end of WW1.

Evangelicanska cerkev / Protestant church


Ob koncu 16. stoletja se je razmahnil protestantizem in na tem podrocju je bil do leta 1670 eden od sedežev evangelicanskih senioratov Železne županije, ko je bilo delovanje protestantov za dlje casa pretrgano. Šele po tolerancnem ediktu Jožefa II. konec 18. stoletja so se evangelicanske cerkvene obcine zacele na novo organizirati in ustanavljati. Evangelicansko cerkev, skupaj z župnišcem, so v Murski Soboti po nacrtih Ernesta Gereya v neogotskem stilu zgradili v letih 1907–1910.

At the end of 16th century the protestantism spread across this lands. Until 1670, when it was halted for more than century, here was one of the seats of Seniorities of Vas county. Only after Patent of Tolerance by emperor Joseph II. at the end of 18th century protestant congregations started to organize again. Protestant church in Murska Sobota was built after the plans of Ernest Gerey in years 1907-1910.

Between WW2 the city was occupied by Hungarians, who in large numbers deported Slovenians and Jews to German concentration camps.
