The month of May is coming to an end and with it, hopefully, the rain too. Maybe this weekend which starts tomorrow and also announces the beginning of the month of June, will take care of a better weather forecast in the upcoming months. Particularly for the city of Maribor is in the first two days of June hosting the 29th Sports Weekend Maribor (Športni vikend Maribor) which will provide the locals as well as foreign visitors, including congress and business guests to the capital of Slovenian Styria, with abundance of sports activities and events to lift up the spirits and maybe to even get the Sun to shine for as long as it gets.
