"My favourite: Walking along the Drava" River Drava Tip by christine.j

River Drava, Maribor: 8 reviews and 30 photos

Interesting as all the main sights were, my favourite in Maribor was walking along the Drava.
There is a path on both sides of the river and it's an easy walk along the water. There are several benches and it was warm enough to sit and just enjoy the scenery. In the background we could see the mountains and the old towers of Maribor.

A word of warning if you go there with small children:
The banks were quite steep, so children need to be watched there, especially when feeding the ducks. We saw a grandmother with her grandson and she was holding him very close.

We were also surprised to see some open staircases, maybe from an old water work or something similar, or an old tunnel, which looked enough dangerous and dark to be interesting for children. I admit I would have loved to go exploring as a child. And I also admit today I would strictly forbid any child to do just that.
