Sveti Martin na Muri
Sveti Martin na Muri is a village and municipality in Međimurje County, Croatia. There are 2,605 inhabitants, most of whom are Croats. It is the northernmost point of Croatia.HistoryThe village is one of the oldest settlements in this part of Međimurje. In Roman times people from Ptuj across the River Mura towards Lendava passed through the area and Roman coins and other material have been found. The area was important in medieval times and had several gothic churches and old castles, including Gradiščak and Lapšina. The Church of Saint Martin was built at this time and later restyled in a baroque manner. There are references to the church from 1334 (Sancti Martini) and then in 1501 (Sancti Martini Superior) and 1650 (Sancti Martini in Komory). The sanctuary is polygonal, arched with late-gothic cross vault, which is carried with ten consoles which are engraved with angel figures and floral ornaments. One has the year 1468 engraved in and there are gothic fresco wall paintings. The present sacristy was built in 1777.LocationSveti Martin na Muri is located in a valley between the northern hills, near where the river Mura enters Croatia, and where peripanon area slowly turns to perialpine. This results in two distinct relief systems: lowlands in the northern part of the Municipality and hilly area in the south. The municipality is characterized by a moderate fresh continental climate.Add Sveti Martin na Muri and other destinations in Croatia to your travel itinerary using our Croatia trip app.
