Are you looking for a fun day out with the kids or with friends and family that have come to visit? It may be your first visit to Maribor or you have been before and want to get to know the city better. Our self-guided Mini Adventure is the perfect way to get acquainted with Maribor at your own pace and in your own time.
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.
Your quest will be to help us retrieve a special magical relic that was hidden away many years ago which we now need to put in our protective custody so the magic within cannot be released and wreak havoc on the city of Maribor. Become one of the Seeker characters presented in the pack and featured on the free collectable badges which are included. Follow the map solving clues - some are sneaky, some not so much. The clues are set on buildings, monuments and permanent features, solving them will reveal the location of the relic you have been tasked to find on your daring adventure.
We've also included special challenges to complete along the way so the fun lasts even longer!
And at the end of the Mini Adventure you will have found the answer to your quest and be able to decode the exclusive 'mini padlock' included in your pack, loaded with lucky Seeker Charms.
We offer a variety of language options including our Easier English version which has been set up for foreign speakers of English and for students of English, at a Beginner-Intermediate level ( A2-B1 level).
