Life in Maribor
Maribor, whose origins as a town can be traced back to the 13th century, is today the second largest city (95.171 inhabitants in January 2011) of Slovenia and represents the centre of Slovenian Styria (Štajerska) region.
Maribor lies in the embrace of the green Pohorje mountains and wine growing hills, at both sides of the river Drava. Pohorje is a skiing centre in winter and a place for hiking, cycling, and recreation all year round. In the municipality of Maribor there is a large number of protected natural sights: three regional/landscape parks (Drava, Trije ribniki, Mariborsko jezero), a natural reserve (Mariborski otok) and others.
The city’s character has been shaped by its industry, which once performed a significant role in the Slovenian economy. Apart from that, Maribor offers a rich and varied cultural experience to inhabitants and visitors. In addition to many cultural events, the citizens can enjoy the city’s beautiful and relaxing surroundings as it lies at the foothills of the Pohorje mountains, providing several outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing.
Special events, such as the traditional Golden Fox Trophy, a Women’s Ski World Cup competition, as well as the international multicultural Festival Lent and events around the Old Vine provide a particularly animated atmosphere. Maribor is also known for its excellent wines, as many vineyards surround the city.
Moreover, with its University, Maribor is also a city with a distinguished intellectual potential.
The fact that the town has chosen to call itself “the University city” denotes its awareness of the importance of education and research in its development.
