guided by: Mojca Štuhec

In the summer, join us with art-enriched afternoon cycling around Maribor. Maribor murals will be the first in this cycle.

During the guided cycling through the streets of Maribor, we will focus on murals - (wall) art compositions of monumental dimensions, which complement the public space with their aesthetic component and content message. We will visit the interior of some public institutions, including a school and cultural facility, a shop and a restaurant. These are ambiences, mostly built in the period from the 1950s to the 1970s, at a time when it was important to design buildings and  interiors together. We will also draw attention to the modern form of street art - graffiti, as they brighten up often hidden or neglected parts of the city in an artistically attractive way.

Summer cycling paths were created in collaboration with the Museum of National Liberation. In case of rain, the cycling path is canceled.
