The Maribor Tourist Board (Zavod za turizem Maribor) acts as a tourist organisation for performing public services in relation to the promotion of tourism, designing comprehensive tourist offers, encouraging the development of tourist infrastructure, promoting wholesome offers and informing visitors.
The Maribor – Pohorje Tourist Board was established by the City of Maribor in 2000 with a decree (MUV5/2000) from the Establishment of the Public Economic Institute for tourism Maribor.
