Maribor

Maribor

Maribor is Slovenia's second biggest city, with a population of 130 thousand. The most striking aspect about it is its proximity to Austria. The border is just about 20 kilometers away, and the distance to the big Austrian city of Graz is about 60 kilometers. These facts have huge economic implications on the city and the whole region. For example, this has led to a thriving real-estate market, and it is obvious that the impact on trade in general has been a very positive one. Maribor is in a way privileged being so close to Austria without being part of it. Due to Slovenia's more market-oriented economic system and its more liberal tax code, the city of Maribor has become very attractive for many Austrian investors too.

This booming market is far from being saturated.

After the fall of communism and Slovenia's independence in 199, things initially didn't look so good for Maribor. With the break-up of Yugoslavia, it lost the markets for its mainly heavy industry, which led to high unemployment in the city. But since the mid-nineties, the trend has been quite positive - the resolute deregulation of the Slovenian economy deserves a lot of credit for this.

Maribor is blessed with a beautiful landscape. It is located exactly on the brink of the Alps, and that makes it a great travel destination, which is facilitated by the fact that it has an international airport, the second-biggest in the country.

In Maribor's suburbs, there is a skiing centre (the Mariborsko Pohorje). The city also has a lot of culture to offer: For example the famous Festival Lent is held every June, and it offers up-scale theatrical and musical events as well as amateur ones.

Besides their native tongue, most residents traditionally speak German, but these days English has probably surpassed it as Maribor's first foreign language. Maribor is a historic town in an ancient landscape, but it appears to be fit for the challenges of the future.
