Historic Maribor was founded in 1254 and is situated on the River Drava with vineyards to the north and the Pohorje Mountains to the southwest.It enjoys pleasant temperatures in the spring, followed by balmy summers, colourful autumns and sub-zero winters where it isallabout the skiing. The World Cup ski slope on Pohorje Mountain just a 10-minute drive from the city centre. Magnificent hiking, biking routes, high-adrenalin activities and world-class events are also on offer.
Not only is it in an eminent wine growing area, but Maribor is also home to one of the biggest and oldest classic wine cellars in Europe (at more than 20,000 square meters / 215,000 square feet) which rests right underneath the city. Also in Maribor is the Old Vine, which at 400-years is the oldest vine in the years – as verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
There is also plenty to see in the Old Town – from medieval towers and remains of the city walls, as well as the square Grajski trg with the castle and museum, Bishop Slomšek’s cathedral with its viewing tower. There is also one of the oldest synagogues in Europe.
All this is within few minutes walk from our flat in the city centre. Something that even majority of central hotels can’t provide.
MARIBOR City Apartment welcomes all the guests!
