Description

Join me on this Online Experience for a walking tour of Maribor - on that will both start and end with wine! 

First, we will meet along the River Drava with the oldest vine in the world. The confirmed age of the "Zametovka” or “Modra Kavcina” vine is over 400 years, which won it a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest noble vine in the world still bearing grapes. After learning some more about this vine, we will head to the Main Square (Glavni trg in Slovene) - the second-largest square in Maribor, where the history and the hustle and bustle of town life flow into one. Here, you can look at important sights of the old town core as I regale you with some interesting stories and legends about them.

We will then head to another square: the Slomsek square, one of the most charming squares in the city. From the University to the Cathedral, we will continue slowly on the city streets to Castle square. Today, the castle is home to the Regional Museum of Maribor, which houses many collections of great value. Before we part ways, you will hear about the Wine Cellar Vinag, which is an important monument here in the city. The oldest part of the cellar, spreading over 15000 m2 and boasting 2.1 km long underground passages, was built in 1847.

I look forward to hosting you on this live-streamed virtual tour and showing you around the wine capital, Maribor.
