The Municipality of Hodoš (pronounced [ˈxoːdɔʃ]; Slovene: Občina Hodoš, Hungarian: Hodos Község) is a municipality in Slovenia. The seat of the municipality is the town of Hodoš. It is part of the Prekmurje region. Both Slovene and Hungarian are official languages in the municipality. The municipality comprises two villages: Hodoš (Hungarian: Hodos) and Krplivnik (Hungarian: Kapornak).[2] The municipality was established on 7 August 1998, when it was separated from the former Municipality of Hodoš–Šalovci.[3]
