City of Maribor

Maribor, Slovenia's second biggest city is proud of its 45-years of tradition of world cup skiing. New Year competitions for the Golden Fox cup attract several thousands of visitors, who are charmed by snowy Pohorje and are served by only two hotels with approximately 400 beds.

This city on the river Drava has a really special attraction, the oldest vine in the world!  Tourists in their hordes enjoy a taste of the wine at the summer outdoor Festival Lent, which lasts three weeks and has received many international awards.

Due to its special relationship with cultural life, in 2012 Maribor will become the European capital of culture; just one year later it will become the host of the winter universiada. Tourists’ visits already saturate the currently available city accommodation, which is why we wish to offer an increase in this capacity and build a European holiday centre that will offer rest and entertainment for 12 months of the year.
