  • We stayed in Maribor in January for 3 days. Apart from the 2/1 that in slovenja is party and everything was closed, maribor we liked (though not quite as lively as the city but for a family with small children is fine!) because it has the charm of a European city with mixture of cultures (you hear Croatian influence , Hungarian, Austrian) ... nice climb to podhorje (economic cableway and all stroller friendly!), great patisseries and restaurants and beautiful stage to terme Zreče!

  • Personally I have been in a hot spell and it was pleasant to wander among the many food stalls and souvenir that every night was along the main road.
