As the capital of Styria (“Štajerska”), Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia. It is pleasant, small and lodged in the wonderful nature of the Pohorje hills on the one side and wine growing hills on the other, with the river Drava wending its way through. With its diversity and quality, it offers a great experience to all visitors and is one of the key tourist destinations in Slovenia.

The rich wine tradition of the oldest vine in the world, the throb of the city with its flourishing cultural history, its location amidst wine growing hills and the green Pohorje as well as the various possibilities for exploring, recreation, relaxation, entertainment and meetings will convince you that Maribor has a heart and soul and that the people of Maribor are excellent hosts.

The old town core promises unforgettable adventure: walk along the Drava embankment and through the lively streets and squares, where history and tradition blend with dynamics and modernity. Let Lent, the oldest part of the town, enchant you with its Old Vine, the oldest vine in the world, with medieval towers and remains of the old town walls, and moreover the square Grajski trg with the castle and museum, the square Glavni trg with the Plaque monument and the Town Hall, Bishop Slomšek’s Cathedral with its viewing tower and Statue of the first bishop of Maribor Anton Martin Slomšek in front of the Cathedral, the Jewish synagogue, the Art Gallery and the Theatre just to mention a few.
