39th Rafters christening (Splavarski krst)

This traditional event on the river Drava – which first took place in the year 1985 – attracts many visitors and prominent guests to the riverbank. Join them as well! 

A tribute to tradition

Rafting on the Drava River is an important part of Maribor's history.

The key purpose of the event, where rafters on a raft christen a young rafter and at the same time a splendid party is on going with an attractive music and a folklore program, is to preserve the culture of rafting, which was once the most important transport and shipment activity on the river Drava.
