Bogojina is a larger village in the community Moravske Toplice. The place was first mentioned in the year 1208 and in the year 1688 got rights like a square. In Bogojina is the most important building the Church of the Ascension. It belongs to Roman Catholic and is the most famous sanctuary of Prekmurje. It stands in a smaller rising ground. The parish church is regularly open. The new church was built in the years from 1924 to 1927. The architect was Joze Plecnik. It is was built to the side of the older one-nave Baroque church with a Romanesque base. Beside the old main entrance the artist placed a dominant cylindrical tower, a bell tower with typical Plecnik artistic forms. Above the entrance facade reigns the statue of Christ on a plain column. The old church is used as the gate area. The new area is separated into two asymmetrical naves with a mighty stone pillar and slightly elevated. A special point of interest is the side altar of St. Joseph. The architect designed additional interior fittings in the years from 1950 to 1956. By the junction below the church the architect designed a sign which points to the beautiful Church of the Ascension.
