About Goričko nature park...

The name Goričko comes from the word "gorice", which is what the local people call the hills which were formed long ago on the bottom of the Pannonian Sea and rose later on. People inhabited the softly shaped sandy terrain in pre-historical times and remained here. Even though the great European cities are close by, "progress" avoided Goričko and thus it has preserved the characteristic appearance of Central Europe from before the Second World War.

Nature

Goričko is covered mostly by medium-humid to semi-dry meadows of good nutrient value and of importance for the production of fodder for dairy cows.

Fun & sports

This harmonious picture invites one to take a walk among the "gorice", along streams and across meadows, along ridges and through forests, or go for a drive over the slightly sloping hillsides.

History & culture

The Goričko region has been covered in forest for more or less its entire history, and therefore has never been thickly settled.
