Ščavnica

The Ščavnica (pronounced [ˈʃtʃaːu̯nitsa]; German: Stainz) is a 56-kilometer (35 mi) river in Styria, Slovenia.[1] It sources near Zgornja Velka and flows along the Slovene Hills towards the southeast. It passes Negova Castle and Sveti Jurij ob Ščavnici, traverses Lake Gajševci (Slovene: Gajševsko jezero) and the town of Ljutomer, and finally joins the Mur from the right in Razkrižje.
