Slovenians celebrate reunification of Prekmurje with Slovenia

Ljubljana, 17 August - The Slovenians celebrate Prekmurje Reunification Day on Wednesday, remembering the return of the north-easternmost region to Slovenia after WWI, when it passed from the military to the civilian authority of the newly-established Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, which fought on the side of the Allies.
