Bogojina

3.7
Bogojina is a village east of Murska Sobota in the Prekmurje region of Slovenia. It lies in the Municipality of Moravske Toplice.NameBogojina was attested in written records in 1208 as Bogma, and as Bagonya in 1322 and Bagona in 1403. The name is derived from the hypocorism Bogoj, meaning 'property/settlement belonging to Bogoj'.HistoryThree burial mounds north of the village testify to ancient settlement in the area. During work in the 1930s, local people found iron artifacts and Roman coins in the mounds, but these objects have since disappeared. The area suffered greatly from Ottoman attacks, which completely destroyed the neighboring village of Obrančavci—the name of this settlement is preserved in the Obrančavci Woods (Obrankovski gozd) northeast of Bogojina. The settlement was Lutheran during the Reformation, but returned to Catholic control in 1669. Schooling was started in the village by Lutheran ministers in the 17th century, but the first schoolhouse was not built until 1827. The village received market rights in 1688; at that time, potters, weavers, and coopers were organized into guilds in the village. During the Second World War, a Partisan checkpoint was located at the Šavel Mill (Šavlov mlin). A civic center was built in the village in 1959, and a fire station in 1974.Unmarked graveBogojina was the site of an unmarked grave from the Second World War. The Cemetery Grave (Grobišče na pokopališču) was located in the village cemetery, next to the entrance. It contained the remains of a German soldier. The remains were exhumed in an undocumented manner.
