From June and all the way to the end of the month of October, foreign visitors to the second largest Slovenian city, Maribor, can take a guided tour of this beautiful city set by the river Drava on Fridays and Saturdays. What makes the tours extra special, are the visits to its unique urban places.

Friday and Saturday tours of Maribor provide to any business or congress guest to Maribor an opportunity to explore the city’s true character through a rich experience of historical stories, tourist offer, and lively beat of the city’s streets and squares. For cherry on top, the tours take to one of the numerous contributors to the city’s urban heart – from museums and galleries, to the oldest Vine in the World, and all the way to diverse craft workshops and vendors with unique products. On Fridays the tours start at 11.00 and on Saturdays at 16.00h. A must-do urban activity when on a business or congress trip to the rising congress destination.
