Mala Hiža: This unique restaurant in Croatia serves traditional hearty dishes from the Međimurje region with some Austro-Hungarian influence. The food is very unique but the place even more so. Down to the very last detail it's nothing like you ever seen before. Sit next to the fire place, close your eyes, sniff the air and you might, just might, believe that you're in the Lord of the Rings. Make a reservation.

Na najsjevernijoj točki Hrvatske, kraj malog naselja zvanog Žabnik, rijeka Mura  okreće impresivno kolo drvenoga riječnog mlina. Jedinstven je to objekat tradicijske graditeljske baštine u Hrvatskoj, ali i šire. Žubor vode i škripa kamenog žrvnja vraćaju posjetitelje u davnu 1902. godinu kada je prvi put samljeveno brašno na tom plutajućem "starcu". Oko mlina, u idiličnom prirodnom ambijentu, uređen je "Mlinarov poučni put".
