After 455 stone stairs you will reach the top and the famous Kalvarija, which has been a popular hiking point of citizens for centuries. In the 17th century, they erected the Church of St. Barbara and Rosalia out of gratitude after the plague ended, and they set up a holy path with chapels to reach the Church.
Piramida is a hill around which the city Maribor was built. Here stood a castle in the 12th century, and the ruins are still present in a shape of a pyramid. The descent starts from the City Park and you are likely to meet some of the lovely but shy animals.

The Pekrska Gorca has always been the location of international ski jump competitions! See for yourself. The ski jump here was constructed by the plans of Stanko Bloudek.

You do not need to exert yourself to reach a beautiful view. The upper station of the Pohorje funicular offers a view of the entire city of Maribor, the Drava valley, wine-growing hills and all the way to the neighbouring Austria.
The Mernaovo Estate is famous for the Archduke Johann's vineyard, who planted the vines from the Rhine region in 1823 and, since the new varieties were so successful, the first vineyard school was established. The Estate holds an important role to this day, since the Faculty of Agriculture and Life Science is housed here.
