“Are you considering visiting Slovenia? We would highly recommend to swap with Igor and Gabrijella from Maribor. They live in a beautifull neighborhood!. From their terrace you have a great view over Maribor and the mountain Pohorje. I&G are 2 warm, caring and very nice people. They gave us an unforgettable time in their house and in Slovenia (and in Maribor). We have been warmly welcomed by them. Their attention and warmth made us feel very much at home. They spent 10 days in our house. And We had an absolutely wonderful (almost 3 weeks) time in their place. The first day we spent time with them. At the end of our stay they took us on a bicycle trip. It was great to explore the beautiful city with them and having a bike ride in the surrounding countryside. What an experience to discover unknown places with these 2 enthusiastic bikers. Due to of the central position of Maribor, we did not only explored different parts of Slovenia with it’s diverse nature and culture but we also were able to take trips to Austria, Croatia and even Italy! When we returned home, we found our house in perfect condition and clean. We enjoyed our swap with Gabriejella and Igor. We highly recommend an exchange with these nice people. Thanks for everything I&G! H&M, Holland ”

Where is it?
There are many footpaths and biking routes around the town and along river
Drava. City’s historical area called Lent is hosting restaurants and bars and
every day there is a farmers market.
No more than 5 km away is Pohorje Mountain accessible with a ropeway and
serves as quite popular trekking area. The hills surrounding Maribor offer
numerous villages and wine routes.
By car (1 to 2 hours’ drive) you can reach wine region similar to Toscana in the
very East of Slovenia around Radenci and Radgona offering also attractive
typical food, spas, biking routes and trekking possibilities. An interesting
historical town to visit is ancient town founded by the Romans Ptuj (Poetovia).
It will take you half an hour drive by car, but can also be reached by bike (35 km
Slovenia is a small country, but disposes over unbelievable geographical
diversity. So also when located in Maribor a lot of interesting places are within
a daily visit reach – such as Adriatic Sea, Alps as well as Pannonia lowlands
stretching further to Hungary.
Among close and popular destinations let us mention: Vienna (250 km),
Budapest (350 km), Zagreb (120 km) and Venice (350 km). The nearest airports
are: Graz (60 km), Ljubljana (120 km) and Zagreb (120 km).
