Maribor in Slovenia

August 8, 2014

Our last stop during this short holiday is Maribor at the river Drava – the second largest city of Slovenia. Unfortunately, most tourists do not stop in this country. Almost all of them are just passing through Ljubljana straight to Croatia.

We are lucky because the famous annual cultural festival Lent is being held at this time. Along the bank of the Drava there are a lot of stands with various types of food and drinks as well as stages with live music performances. These advantages of Maribor have been discovered earlier by selecting this city as the Cultural Capital of Europe 2012.

In the local rustic restaurant we eat lepinja s čevapčiči in kajmakom, a huge sandwich with meat, onions and cheese like butter. Delicious! Lepinja is not a diet dish, so for better digestion we order the local beer Laśko.

But Slovenia is more a country of wine, not beer. The surrounding hills are covered by vines and the owners of the vineyards invite guests to taste their wines. In the centre of Maribor we take pictures of the oldest vine in the world – Stara trta – which is the symbol and attraction of the city.

Not far away are the Pohorje mountains. We walk to a nearby summit to enjoy the panorama and the view over Maribor. On the way we pass the slope, where traditionally Women Ski World Championship Zlata Lisica is held. It’s so beautiful! We would love to stay here longer and visit even more places…
