Although it's the administrative, cultural and commercial centre for the far eastern part of Slovenia, Lendava is a only a small town but that makes it perfect for exploring in a half day, or you might want to dedicate a full day if you wanted to visit the castle (also reviewed in this journal). The industrious people at the tourist information office have produced a series of leaflets looking at the history of a number of important buildings in the town and it's worth stopping at the office to ask for them.
