Maribor is the second most important centre and the second largest city of Slovenia. It has about 114,000 inhabitants who live embraced in its wine growing hills and the Mariborsko Pohorje mountain. Maribor is near Slovenian border with Austria, beside the Drava River and at the centre of five natural geographic regions. It is the capital of Štajerska, the Slovenian Styria. Today, Maribor is a trans-regional financial, educational, trade and cultural centre. And since it's pleasantly small and lodged in the nature of Pohorje Mountain on the one side, the wine growing hills on the other, and with the river Drava wending its way through it, Maribor has grown into one of the country’s most important tourist destinations.
