Lendava (formerly "Donja Lendava"; Hungarian: Lendva, formerly "Alsólendva"; _de. Lindau, formerly "Unter-Limbach") is a town and a municipality in Slovenia in the region of Prekmurje. It is close to the border crossing with Hungary at Dolga vas-Rédics, and Hungarian is one of the official languages of the municipality, along with Slovenian. Lendava was a district ( _hu. járás) of Zala in the Kingdom of Hungary until 1918. It was annexed to Hungary again from 1941 to 1945.
