The Via Saint-Martin pilgrimage route to Ludbreg becomes the new tourist attraction
December 31, 2021 – The Via Saint Martin pilgrimage route to Ludbreg is the latest attraction to draw tourists to the “center of the world”.
Imagine a region full of mysticism, miracles, stories and legends; a region so special that it is crossed by a thread that goes back to the very beginnings of civilization in this region; a thread that has been upgraded with each new event, situation, success or defeat and which today is the culmination of the spatial, cultural, economic, social and, ultimately, civilizational projection of times past under the circumstances of today writes HRTurizam.
Then imagine a space that combines all the essential themes, tourist attractions, stories and legends, historical heritage and cultural heritage of this region into a rounded whole.
Meet today’s Ludbreg, a very diverse city.
And from today’s perspective, diversity is the word that best describes Ludbreg. Its historical and cultural heritage, its tame and varied landscapes make it an exciting place for rest, excursions, relaxation, exploration or adventure in an almost untouched nature. You can find everything in Ludbreg: traces of prehistory, remains from Antiquity, medieval and Baroque castles and churches, a well-known sanctuary and exciting outdoor facilities. And now a new tourist attraction is available that lets you see old Ludbreg from a new perspective – the Via Saint Martin pilgrimage route.
The route crosses the town and the slopes of the Ludbreg vineyards and connects all the religious content that tells its story with nature, local vineyards and gastronomy. The route itself is a novelty that fits perfectly into the already existing story that Ludbreg tells its visitors. By creating the Via Saint Martin route, locals and visitors have improved access to religious sites, natural spaces and tourist facilities.
The motif of Saint Martin and the inspiration of his life connected Ludbreg and Zalaszentmarton, who developed this new product as part of the project. The pilgrimage route was established within the framework of the project “Supporting the promotion and development of transnational pilgrimage routes linked to sustainable and cultural tourism”, co-funded by the INTERREG VA Hungary – Croatia 2014 – 2020 cooperation program.
