Lent, the Maribor’s old city centre, that amazes with its vibrant streets, mighty buildings and wonderful frontages, monuments and fountains that adorn the city’s squares, bridges that link the banks of the river, towers that rise into Maribor’s sky, is not just home to the Oldest Vine in the world, but it is also a home to the only medieval church in Maribor.
Mairbor’s Minorite church got completely renovated between 2014 and 2015. The important sacral building for the history of the city has gotten back its late-Baroque image, while some important discoveries of the past construction were left uncovered so that the history of the church can be seen through their beautiful presentation.
The team who carried out the renovation, received in 2015 from Slovenian association of preservation (Slovensko konservatorsko društvo) an award as “the renovation of the former Minorite church is an important element of the city’s revitalization as well as an example for interventions and methods of renovation works at comparable monuments in the wider region of Slovenia and Europe.”
The Minorite Church can be booked for cultural programmes compatible with the field of work of the Puppet Theatre Maribor. There can be 200 visitors (either standing or ssitting) in the venue.
Clients organise the catering by their wishes. As the building is a protected monument, the catering has minor limitations but these make for an added value of the event due to their ‘conversational character’ on the history, art and culture of this stunning building: the catering can’t serve red coloured food and drinks (red wine, red juices, red fruits, red sauces, and similar).
