What we recommend in Maribor

Maribor offers everything that big cities have, and everything is easily accessible on foot or by bike. Sights, the cultural scene and entertainment, the relaxed and authentic atmosphere as well as the wonderful and diverse nature are the trump cards of this beautiful Central European town on the river Drava. Maribor’s turbulent past has shaped its unique character, which the visitor can feel if he or she takes the time to experience the city. It is also good to read something about the second largest Slovenian city. It may happen that you will return to Maribor or you will not want to leave it at all.

Fani&Rozi's recommendations complement the city's tourist classic:

City centre

Maribor Puppet Theatre – is housed in the restored Minorite monastery and is the flagship of urban culture. Visit a show or concert at one of the many venues or simply explore the Minorite complex.
Website / Location

Jewish Square – is a hidden pearl overlooking the river Drava and the old town core, the former Jewish quarter with a medieval synagogue and galleries.
Website / Location

Castle ruins on Piramida - walk around them as you pant across the city vineyard to the chapel at the top. The people of Maribor like to look at their city from all the hills and peaks, but the main one is Piramida, once called Castle Hill.
Website / Location

Neighbourhoods of bourgeois villas – they surround the city park and the foothills, where you enter a garden from the city and enter the city from a garden.
