Afternoon activity, August 27th, Tuesday
Maribor’s old-style timber rafting dates back to the 13th century. In old times the Drava river was the main transport link, and rafters docked in Maribor when they transported timber from the forests of Pohorje and Kozjak all the way down to Osijek and Belgrade. Maribor in 2012 gained even the honorary title of The European Rafting City.
During the tour, guests are also treated to culinary specialities from the region and a musical delight of an aboard Rafter’s Trio. For an additional relaxed and fun atmosphere, the rafters will execute a real rafter’s christening of one of the passengers.
After (or before) the rafting, contestants will visit a Center of experiments Maribor, where they will experiment with interactive experiments and participate in workshops. Science is exciting and educational fun for everyone.
