A historic wine region known for its world record-holding grapevines, Styria’s landscape is a scenic blend of rolling hills, vineyards and ancient towns. Throw in the charming and cosmopolitan capital city of Maribor and you have got a destination that belongs on the itinerary of every trip to Slovenia.
Styria’s capital, Maribor, is Slovenia’s second-largest city after the capital, yet it is pleasantly petite. From charming old-town buildings to a buzzing cafe culture, Maribor mixes history and tradition with a modern and cosmopolitan vibe.
Maribor is surrounded by natural beauty, with rolling wine-growing hills on one side and the snowy peaks of Pohorje on the other, and the waters of the River Drava running through the centre. With a long history dating back to the Middle Ages, Maribor is full of historical treasures, including Medieval towers, the ruins of city walls, charming old squares, a castle and a cathedral, not to mention the famous Old Vine, said to be the oldest living vine in the world, in the historic quarter of Lent.
If you want a little luxury in Maribor, the city has plenty of upmarket accommodation in the its centre. Choose from charming spa hotels in the heart of the old town, luxurious family-friendly high-rises, or thoroughly modern hotels with quirky decor and spa tubs in the bathrooms.
There are hotels in every price bracket throughout Maribor, but if you are on a budget, you will have more options on the outskirts of town, where there is a wider choice of comfortable yet affordable three-star accommodation.
Clinging to the facade of the Old Vine House are the creeping grapevines of Maribor’s most notable resident: the Old Vine, the oldest grape-producing vine in the world. Dating back to the 17th-century, the Zametovka vine today produces around 110lbs of grapes a year, which makes around 100 miniature bottles. Don’t set your heart on drinking any of the wine, through – it is reserved for visiting dignitaries. You can, however, head inside the Old Vine House to learn more about local winemaking and get your fix in a tasting session of regional wines.
Thanks to its manageable size and pedestrianised central streets, Maribor is easily walkable and you can see most of the best sights by foot in a day, leaving the rest of your time free for strolling along the laid-back riverbanks and people-watching over a glass or two of the local Riesling.
Although Maribor is the beating heart of the Styria region, it doesn’t hold all of the cards. Head for the lovely 800-year-old town of Slovenske Konjice for Gothic and Renaissance architecture, a 13th-century church and the ruins of a 12th-century castle. Or spend time in Žice, where you can explore the old buildings of the 12th-century Žice Monastery and dine out at Gastuz Inn, one of the oldest restaurants in Europe, where they’ve been serving Slovenian classics since 1467.
