Jure Struc, director of the Maribor Tourist Board, commented: “The current tourism results fill us with satisfaction and positive expectations even at the end of this year. The city has been at the centre of the eventful and magical Maribor activities since the beginning of December and witnessed the long-awaited start of the ski season. The connection of local providers, event organisers and partner organisations remains the concept of creating an offer for our guests. The latter also contributes to our optimistic forecasts for Maribor’s tourism in the coming seasons.”
