If you’re visiting Slovenia you should visit Maribor, a European Capital of Culture – a major accomplishment for such a small country! Maribor is just over an hour’s drive east of Chalet Lenart, and has organised a year of outstanding and exciting cultural performances. These will include not only big names, but will draw from its rich local resources to launch new artists into the wider world for 2013 and beyond. This is with the aim of leaving a lasting heritage and impact from the initiative, rather than ‘footsteps in the sand’.
Events will take place not only in Maribor but also in its partner towns of Murska Sobota, Ptuj, Slovenj Gradec, Novo Mesto and Velenje.
