Visit Maribor with a Mobile Guide
Maribor, the second largest city in the country, is a cosy city spanning from the wonderful nature of the Pohorje hills on one side of the Drava river to the wine-growing hills on the other. Maribor has developed from a former industrial centre into an important cultural city in the eastern part of Slovenia. The city centre, which is perfect to explore on foot, is full of cafes, boasting youthful energy and student life, while the riverside Lent district hosts the major summer arts festival, “Lent”. There, on the Drava River embankment, is also the Old Vine House with the oldest vine in the world. The confirmed age of the vine is over 450 years, which won it a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest noble vine in the world still bearing grapes.
