It has been officially designated a "stork village" (i.e., a settlement with 10 or more storks’ nests). It was also the home of the Slovene writer Miško Kranjec. The house where he was born (which is also the tourist information office) can be visited. The village is surrounded by fenland and fields of sunflowers, pumpkins, and wheat. The best way to explore the area is by cycling or walking the numerous trails.
