Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia. It lies on the river Drava.
After taking your coffee in the legendary coffee house Astoria, a relaxing morning walk through the city's oldest part – Lent, which lies on the bank of river Drava, is just beautiful.
Along the river you'll see the Guinness Book-certified oldest grapevine in the world, called Stara trta (The Old Vine), which is more than 400 years old. You can visit the Old Vine House and the Jewish part of the city with the Synagogue, which today serves as a centre for cultural activities, with events like exhibitions, concerts and literary evenings. Swans and ducks will make you company while you are observing the Defence towers.
Lent is hosting a two-week festival every June, with hundreds of musical, theatrical and other events.
