Cycling may be one of the best ways to tour Maribor, a great base for exploring the surrounding area and conquering Pohorje Mountains.
On the 2nd (Sun), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Plečnik's Church, contemplate the long history of Grandmother's Mill, pause for some serene contemplation at Parish Church of St. Marija - Ptujskogorska Mother of God, then explore the landscape on two wheels at Pekrska Gorca, then have some family-friendly fun at Escape Room Enigmarium Maribor, and finally appreciate the extensive heritage of Lent. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Church of St. George, appreciate the extensive heritage of Prešernova Street, get to know the fascinating history of Slovenski trg Square, then explore the historical opulence of Celje Castle, and finally contemplate the long history of Žiče Charterhouse.

Sitting astride the Ljubljanica River, Ljubljana is marked with picturesque bridges and a marketplace, designed by the famous architect Jože Plečnik.
Ljubljana Castle and Franciscan Church of the Annunciation will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Stand-Up Paddleboarding.
