The town of Lendava stands at the foot of the isolated Dolga vas hills. Lendava is the easternmost town in Slovenia. It is situated at an intersection of several major arteries. The Romans called their outpost on the Poetovio–Savaria route (today Ptuj-Szombathely) Halicanum. A church was said to be consecrated there in 853, and the town of Lindva, named after the local river, was first mentioned in records dating from 1192, when the estate spanning almost the entire area of southeastern Prekmurje was bought by the Hahold family, which renamed to Banffy in the middle of the 13th century.
