Pohorje (Črni vrh, 1,543.5 m), a mountain range that rises above the town of Maribor and from there extends to the west. It is a beautiful natural green oasis with countless opportunities for relaxation and recreation.
Pohorje’s landscape is decorated by various natural attractions, such as, peat bogs and lakes, waterfalls and a primeval forest. There are many hiking and biking trails that crisscross this beautiful scenery. To ensure that one’s adrenaline will continue to flow there is an adventure park, summer toboggans, and a mountain bike - bike park. In winter, of course, there are a number of activities that are available on the snow. In the winter, Maribor Pohorje is transformed into one of the largest ski resorts in Slovenia. Pohorje’s specialty is the longest night skiing avaliable in Slovenia. The whole town is practically a ski resort, because you can get from the city centre to the foothills of Pohorje (ie. the bottom station of the Pohorska Vzpenjača Cable Car) in just 10 minutes by a city bus. The foothills of Pohorje are particularly lively during the Golden Fox - FIS Ski World Cup for Women, which is one of the biggest and most important sporting events at the destination.
Next to the natural attractions and rich sports and recreational facilities, Pohorje offers other genuine experiences. Whether for lovers of wine and gastronomy or those who want to seek relaxation in the wellness centres, Pohorje offers something for everyone.
