Invitation to a charity ball for the construction of the Murska Sobota - Lendava railway line


unknown author



Rail connections were poor in the Prekmurje Region. In 1909, a main route connected Murska Sobota, Zalalövő and Goričko, while there was no connection between the lowland villages and Lendava. Following the annexation of the Prekmurje to the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, in 1924, Ljutomer and Murska Sobota were connected by a railway line. The Murska Sobota - Lendava railway line was discontinued. Local people, through politicians and at various fundraising events, urged the authorities to build a railway, to no avail. Between 1968 and 2001, the only railway line in the Prekmurje Region between Murska Sobota and Hodos was discontinued.
