Maribor (pronounced [ˈmaːɾibɔɾ] German: Marburg an der Drau) is the second-largest city in Slovenia with about 114,487 inhabitants in 2013. Maribor is also the largest city of the traditional region of Lower Styria and the seat of the City Municipality of Maribor. In 2000, Maribor was given the Alpine Town of the Year award. Association football club NK Maribor is based in the city.

Many medieval structures still stand in Maribor. Of the remains of city walls, the most prominent are the Judgement Tower Wikipedia Icon, the Water Tower Wikipedia Icon, and the Jewish Tower. The Maribor Cathedral Wikipedia Icon was built in the Gothic style in the 13th century. The Town Hall Wikipedia Icon was constructed in the Renaissance style.

Piramida Hill dominates the northern border of the city. Ruins of the first Maribor castle from the 11th century and a chapel from the 19th century are also located here. The hill offers an easily accessible scenic overlook of Maribor and the countryside to the south with the Drava River.

At the start of the 21st century, plans were made for a new modern business, residential and entertainment district, called the Drava Gate (Dravska vrata) and nicknamed Maribor Manhattan. The project includes many new exclusive residential apartments, offices and conference halls, a green and recreational space, and other structures. It also includes a 111 m (364 ft) tall skyscraper that would be the tallest building in Slovenia. Due to lack of finances, the project is currently postponed.

In 2008 the Studenci Footbridge (Studenška brv) was renovated according to the design of the Ponting company.

There are plans to renovate the Maribor Public Library and the Town Hall Square (Rotovški trg). In addition, the renovation of Maribor Island (Mariborski otok) in the Drava River is being planned.
