Celebrate Love in Maribor


Top things to do this Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day is approaching, and many of you are wondering what to do on that particular holiday. Maybe that involves surprising your significant other. Maybe it doesn’t. No matter what your situation is or who you’re celebrating with, remember to treat yourself too. If you happen to be in Maribor in February, here are some things that will make your life a little sweeter.

Learn to make your own chocolate

Chocolate is always a good idea. Instead of buying a box at the store, do it differently this year. Learn something new, enjoy the satisfaction of creating something with your hands, and treat your taste buds. The workshop includes some theoretical background about cocoa and chocolate, making your own chocolate, a glass of sparkling wine, and a tasting of Teta Frida chocolate creations and chocolate gin. Booking is required.

Enjoy a little luxury in the best-rated restaurant in Slovenia

Mak Restaurant is the highest-ranking Slovenian restaurant on La Liste, the French list of the best global restaurants. Dining at Mak is not your usual night out—it’s a true culinary adventure. You won’t get a menu there. All you need to do is sit back and trust the chef and his imagination. Trust the journey.

Booking is required. More information and booking here

Have dinner in your own private igloo

No, we can’t take you to the North Pole, and no, we can’t conjure up snow to make the atmosphere more romantic, but we can direct you to the enchanting little winter village at La Cantina right under Pohorje. If you’re ever wanted to eat out and enjoy perfect privacy at the same time, this is just the thing for you. Booking is highly recommended due to the limited number of igloos. More information here. For booking call +386 (0)2 614 5 614

Relax in a private spa

Located in the old centre of town, this small haven is easily accessible and suitable for up to four people—or very luxurious for two. The spa is equipped with a Finnish sauna and a Kneipp bath. The package includes towels, sheets, slippers, bathrobes, and refreshment, and you can always choose to complete your evening with a glass of sparkling wine or dinner in Gostilna Maribor, which are available by arrangement. Booking is required. More information here.

Share a hot chocolate with your other half …

… or have a whole mug on your own. Go on. You deserve it. In either case, spending some time way above town, under the lights of the winter-themed Luftarca terrace, is a great break from the fast-pace life below. Order one of their unique hot chocolate creations, take photos in their scenic photo corner, and just seriously enjoy the view.

Spend time outside

It may be cold outside, but that only means it’s time to grab your skis or snowboard and make the best of the winter months. You have neither? Get on a sledge and let your inner child take over. Combining fresh air, physical activity, and good company is a recipe for fun. If you want to relax afterwards, you can always take a soak in one of the spas in or near the Pohorje ski resort.
