Bolfenk the Elf's ancient plan
to destroy Maribor?
The Elf's Royal Revenge
Many years ago, Bolfenk the Elf hatched a dastardly plan to let loose deadly bugs that would destroy all that was green in Maribor, including the queen's precious Old Vine. Special explorers are needed to solve the clues and locate these bugs which were hidden to stop him carrying out this crime.
Could that be you or someone you know?
A self-guided Mini Adventure is the perfect way to get acquainted with Maribor at your own pace and in your own time. And your efforts will be richly rewarded!
Maribor, Slovenia's second city has a lot to offer an explorer. Not only is it where you will find the Oldest Vine in the world, located in the historic Lent area of the city. But it's also home to countless landmarks. A 15th-century castle, an even older cathedral, a synagogue and lots of interesting squares to amble through. Plus, there's the mighty Drava River to take in as you complete your quest.
This exciting Mini Adventure leads you from the Lent area of Maribor, along the Drava, passing the Water Tower and to the Old Vine itself. Then on to the Judgement Tower which was linked to the witch trials that once took place in the city. Visit the numerous squares, where you will see such sights as the Plague Monument, the impressive City Hall and Maribor castle. From Trg Svobode Square you get a lovely view of the surrounding countryside, towards the city hill, Piramida, where the old castle once stood.
