Back to strolls

First stroll - The centre

As in many other European cities boasting a medieval tradition, perhaps the most interesting part of Maribor is at its centre, the medieval fortified town. The town wall, which used to enclose it, was almost the shape of a square. It ran from the Castle along present-day Svetozarevska ulica, a stone's throw from the river. It continued along the river heading west, to the Okrogli stolp (Round Tower), and from there to the north, alongside present-day Strossmayerjeva ulica; there it broke off and, following present-day Gregorciceva ulica, headed back towards the Castle. The first stroll around town should encompass the old town
