Thursday Doors 3/2/22: Prekmurje

Prekmurje is the flat, Pannonian, NE region of Slovenia in the head of the chicken if you look at the map. I was there in 2019 and still haven’t showed all of its doors. And there is a drive-by of Austrian doors too.

This is Slovenia. A reminder: There is Italy to the west, Austria to the north, Hungary to the east, and Croatia to the south.

That summer day in 2019 amore and I drove to the fuchsia Prekmurje where a friend from my student days waited to show us around. We had a lovely day that resulted in three Thursday Doors post so far:

Several doors have remained to be showed and I’m going to do it now. I was reminded of them when going through the photos of that day for my current public art series for Marsha’s challenge (PPAC).

So the first door below is of the lift that took us to the top of the interesting Vinarium Tower in Lendava, which I showed you in full in my last PPAC post and from which you can see four countries.

In the featured photo there is the front door of the peculiar Lendava Cultural Centre which you will see in full in my upcoming PPAC post this weekend. And trust me, it is quite a reveal.

At the end of today’s post there is a brief drive-by through Austria with some blurry doors of Bad Radkersburg, since it was closer this way to reach Gornja Radgona, its twin border town in Slovenia, where my friend is from. The two towns are joined by the bridge over the Mura river, which I will show in an upcoming public art post as well.

Don’t you love the European Union and its lack of border control? It’s almost like we are all together and all the same (right…).

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. Like Deborah. I like the 1896 building,. There are so many good photos here, it’s hard to choose.

    I like the idea of the discarded door as being inspirational. Judging from the entries we got last year, and the writing challenges I’ve been in since then, it could lead to an interesting story.

  2. Beautiful towers in this region and doors, Manja:)
    About your comment I saw yesterday (I’m not much on the computer now because of prepping for a n art workshop) – on my blog i show only my own paintings (St Germain is my artist name, taken from my late mother’s maiden name)., so yes, it is my painting:) Thanks for asking! Emille
