Maribor, the capital of the Štajerska region, is the second largest city in the country but at the same time it is nicely small and green. Its lively throb, superior culture and events, rich wine tradition and the oldest vine in the world, numerous possibilities for entertainment, relaxation and exercise in nature, as well as its reputation of relaxed openness and hospitality also led Maribor to the honorary title of European Capital of Culture 2012 and European Youth Capital 2013.
The city of Maribor merges with the wonderful nature of Pohorje’s forests and picturesque wine growing hills in one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Slovenia. A quick trip up Pohorje, a green wonder of the Slovenian mountains that attracts hikers, bikers, adrenaline seekers, as well as lovers of peace to Pohorje’s primeval forest, waterfalls, streams, and peat moors. During the winter, as the largest ski resort in Slovenia, snow blanketed Maribor Pohorje extends a warm welcome.
