Maribor, the best Eurotrip destination

While planning a trip through Europe it is extremely important to include also those little parts of the world, or in this case Europe, that may slip your sight while endlessly staring at the map. Because they may have some undiscovered adventures to offer and they are guaranteed to be crowd free. At least to some extent. The one country that stand out is definitely Slovenia which is quite easily missed on the map, although it is uniquely shaped like a chicken. A chicken!

If not purely because of this humorous fact, Slovenia is definitely a welcoming and wonderful country that has a lot to offer. Go ahead and check it out on the Say HI to Slovenia Blog. But for a real Eurotrip experience it is quite essential not to just sight-see but also to be a part of a big cultural event. And where better to start than at the Festival Lent, a traditional cultural and musical event in Slovenia's second biggest city, in Maribor.

The Festival Lent is an on-going summer festival in Maribor that has been happening for more than twenty years. It takes place on the bank of the Drava river and it hosts several smaller events within it such as the international folklore festival Folkart, the JazzLent, the festival of street-food Sladolent, the festival of street theatre Ana Desetnica, and Art Camp, that is located in the City park. Lent is in fact the biggest open-air festival in Slovenia and one of the biggest in Europe, therefore being a necessary stop on your trip through Europe.

As for the travelling part, a very convenient way to travel to Maribor is by bus from Prague, from where the Flixbus prices start €25.00, depending on the time of your trip. Amazing! And just in the Eurotrip spirit.

So pack enough sun cream, because the river tends to attract more sunlight, book your ticket and see you in Maribor from 23.–30. of June, on the 25th Festival Lent!
