The popular destination of Filovci is located 2 km east of Bogojina. The settlement, full of inviting vineyards and hills (Trnavski Breg, Gaj, Filovski Breg), where the stone-brick cottages and wine taverns still bear straw roofs (Berdenova klet, Penova klet), is renowned for its strong pottery tradition. According to lore, there once was a potter in each Filovci household. Black clay pottery withstood the test of time. The most popular items are the black clay pitcher and the black clay carafe – the 'pütra', where water and other liquids are peserved clear and fresh for a very long period of time. In addition to pottery, the Pottery Village of Filovci features two active architectural monuments – reminders of the once prominent type of construction and building in the area. They are two traditional "cimparača" – houses covered with straw and built of wood and clay.
A vintage attraction of the village is the Vitis Vitae vineyard with approximately 40 different species of vining plants. A descendant of the oldest living vine in the world – the 'modra kavčina' (also known as the Zametovka and the Blue Cologne) is planted adjacent to the village chapel.
Local societies are responsible for 'keeping the beat' of the community alive and well, particularly during the summer season. Pottery aficionados and food fanciers of cuisine will definitely enjoy the annual Wine and Cuisine Festival which regularly takes place during the month of June. Those who enjoy hiking in winter are welcome to take part in the 'Pohod treh kraljev' (The Three-Wise-Men-Hike) with the route leading through Filovci and the nearby hills. The village is also home to a local singing choir.
Filovci have been mentioned in combination with quite a few archaeological finds dated back to the Copper Age.
