A few days ago we covered the upcoming Maribor 2012 and its place as one of the towns chosen to be the European Capital of Culture next year. In keeping with Argo Travel’s image and media focused core value, we contacted the Slovenia Tourism Board about more images. Their PR exec Jasmina Godec graciously responded with the FTP for their best images.
Below the reader will find some of the venues, places, and entertainment one can expect to see visiting Maribor for the upcoming opening and ongoing festivities. Slovenia is pulling out all the stops to Wow the world. As you will see.
January 14th and 15th, 2012 Maribor and all Slovenia kick off what will be a memorable opening and a year long culture fest the likes of which not so many have ever experienced.

As you might imagine, everyone in Slovenia has been preparing for this for years, as some of the images below, the enthusiasm and pride are catching.
