Razkrižje

Razkrižje (pronounced [ˈɾaːskɾiʒjɛ]; Croatian: Raskrižje, Hungarian: Ráckanizsa) is a village in Slovenia. It is the seat of the Municipality of Razkrižje. Traditionally it was part of the region of Međimurje, and later (after the Second World War) was included in the region of Styria, lying on its extreme eastern tip. It is now included in the Mura Statistical Region. It is known for its folk dances, which incorporate diverse cultural influences, owing to the village's location at the crossroads of paths connecting Styria, Prekmurje, and Međimurje.[2]
