Radenci (pronounced [ˈɾaːdɛntsi]) is a town on the right bank of the Mura River in the Mura Statistical Region of northeastern Slovenia. It is a well-known spa town and was first mentioned in written documents dating back to 1436. After 1833, when a new source of mineral water was discovered, it developed into a popular resort.[2] Since 1994 it has been the centre and the largest settlement of the Municipality of Radenci.
