Guided walking tour of Maribor

This guided walking tour covers all the major sights located in the old centre of Maribor, the European Capital of Culture 2012. While strolling from the city castle all the way to the banks of the river Drava, you’ll get to know the story of medieval ills, the legend about the young shoemaker who saved the people of Maribor when the Turks wanted to seize it, and the story about the prosperity of Maribor which was one of the most important industrial centres in the 1980s.
Get a sense of the city’s pulse, find out how locals preserve the tradition of crafting, and admire the breath-taking view from the bell tower of Maribor Cathedral where you’ll also be able to ring the wishing bell. If you decide to visit Maribor then you can’t miss the wine tasting in the temple of wine – the Old Vine House with the oldest living vine in the world.
