Slovenska ulica 17, 9000 Murska Sobota


Murska Sobota’s Lutheran parish is one of the young parishes. Originally belonged to the Puconci parish, and it became an independent parish in 1900. The church was built in neo-Gothic style in 1910 by the Budapest-based architect Jenő Gerely, and in 2010 it was named after Martin Luther. The colorful rosette above the altar shows a picture of Luther. The wooden altar was made in Radkersburg. The altarpiece is the work of Jenő Bory. The organ is manual, pneumatic, made in 1911 with 21 registers. Today it is the largest Lutheran parish in the Republic of Slovenia.
