Maribor. Pop. 115,000. Currency Euro. Language Slovenian. Time Zone GMT + 1 hour. Nearest airport – Maribor and Graz (Austria). Best Time to go – all year round. Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia and is the principal city of the region of Lower Styria. The River Drava flows through the city until it reaches the Danube. Before World War I, Maribor was mainly populated by Germans, many of whom emigrated to Austria after the war ended. The German population was further reduced after Wordl War II when expulsions occurred as a reprisal for the cruel treatment of Slovenes. After hostilities had ended Maribor capitalised on it’s skilled labour force and it’s close proximity to the Austrian border to establish itself as the largest industrial city in Slovenia (Yugoslavia at the time) and a strong trading hub. The breakup of Yugoslavia largely removed that market from Maribor and the city suffered in the early 1990’s. Recent diversification away from heavy industry into small and medium sized businesses is proving to be successful. Despite it’s industrial past there is a very pleasant old town with some excellent views of the River Drava. Things to see include: Mestni park; Lent (Waterfront area); Mariborski grad (Castle); and Stara trta (Reputedly the world’s oldest vine).
