The municipality consists of 9 villages: Brezje, Dragoslavec, Frkanovec, Lopatinec, Mali Mihaljevec, Okrugli Vrh, Pleškovec, Vučetinec and Zasadbreg. The municipality covers an area of 30,17 km², while its population in the 2001 census was 5,090. The majority of the population are Croats.
The official seat of the municipality is Lopatinec, although the municipal administration is located in Pleškovec, with the village also including the municipality's elementary school and the main church of the local parish. In the 19th century, the present villages of Dragoslavec, Frkanovec, Lopatinec, Okrugli Vrh, Pleškovec and Vučetinec were considered a single village under the present name of the municipality - Sveti Juraj na Bregu.
The main church of the local parish sits atop of a hill and is one of the most prominent churches in the region, as it is also visible from the D3 state road while driving from Varaždin in the direction of Čakovec. In 2008, it was heavily damaged when its bell tower collapsed during renovations, but has since been rebuilt.
