On your next trip to the Slovenian city of Maribor make sure to consider our Maribor car hire services as your means of personal transportation. This is the country’s second largest city and an also a very important cultural, financial and educational center.
Even though the city is served by an international airport, the airport doesn’t provide regular flight connections so you’ll most probably land in one of the nearby airports such as the Ljubljana or Graz one and then normally take a train to Maribor, for instance there’s a train for Maribor which leaves Graz Airport six times a day. On the other hand your best choice would be to employ our Ljubljana car rental or Graz car rental services and have a car ready for you at the airport so that you can drive to Maribor.
Thanks to its very rich wine culture, recreational activities and old town center, Maribor has become one of the country’s most important tourist destinations.
One interesting and particular attraction of this wine culture is the world’s oldest vine, a four hundred and fifty year old vine which grows on the front of the Old Vine House.
The Old Vine House itself is a sort of a temple dedicated to the tradition related to wine and grapes. It’s part exhibition room with guided tours as well as an event room, wine tasting place as well as the honorary seat of various Slovene and international wine associations.
Lent is the oldest part of Maribor, this is where you’ll find the upper mentioned attractions as well as the Water Tower, the Judgement Tower and the old Jewish Quarter with its Synagogue, Square and Tower.
Another interesting attraction to visit is the Slomskov Square which is located in the old town part of Maribor where you can find the Cathedral and a statue of Bishop Anton Martin Slomsek. The square is lined with large buildings like the Rectorate of the University, the Post Office and the Slovene National Theatre.
