The Municipality of Ljutomer (Slovene: Občina Ljutomer) is a municipality in northeastern Slovenia, some 40 km east of Maribor. Traditionally it was part of the region of Styria. It is now included in the Mura statistical region.[2] Its largest settlement and the administrative center is Ljutomer.

The Ljutomer area was the birthplace of the ethnologist and Romantic poet Stanko Vraz (1810–1851), linguist Franc Miklošič (1813–1891), pioneer of film making Karol Grossmann (1864–1929), and painter Ante Trstenjak (1894–1970).
