Maribor, European Capital of Culture 2012
Maribor among "Top 10 things to do in 2012" by Lonely Planet

Exploring the old city centre of Maribor has been placed among the “Top 10 things to do in 2012” by Lonely Planet.
Maribor, which is sharing 2012’s title of the European Capital of Culture with Guimaraes in Portugal, is “an unfound Slovenian pearl” according to Lonely Planet.
In terms of tourism, the cultural events in the second largest city in Slovenia are also expected to attract those who ordinarily keep to the settled “Ljubljana – Lake Bled – Triglav National Park" triangle.
As indicated by Lonely Planet, expect art, music and other festivals to accompany the well-established theatre, classical music and folklore performances.
The real stars of the show will be Maribor’s delightful Old Town and imposing castle, combined with a laid-back air best sampled from a cafe in one of the city’s many delightful, diminutive squares.
And to feel the “competition” in which Maribor has been placed, for the "Top 10 things to do in 2012", Lonely Planet has made the following selection of anniversaries, gatherings and essential destinations to put in one`s diary for 2012: (1) Honour Scott’s Polar Centenary, (2) Follow Napoleon across Russia, (3) Visit Namibia’s protected coast, (4) Go football crazy in Poland and Ukraine, (5) Chase Australia’s Top End eclipse, (6) Meet the Maid of Orleans on her 600th birthday, (7) Discover a new Middle East, (8) Explore Maribor’s Old Town, (9) Play arcade classics at the Smithsonian and (10) Check out Korea’s Expo.

 

Maribor offers accomodation in great variety of hostels and the choice depends on whether you want to feel the buzz of the city center or you are more for a peaceful and relaxing stay outside the city. The choice is yours!
