Maribor, Slovenia`s second-largest city, feels cozy and provincial, but looks can be deceiving. Its young, cosmopolitan university population keeps the town lively year-round, and the city`s emphasis on promoting the arts resulted in Maribor being named the European Capital of Culture in 2012. Travelers will enjoy strolling the pedestrian-only streets of the historic Old Town, located on the picturesque Drava River. The hills and valleys around the city are known the world over for challenging hiking trails as well as expansive vineyards.
