“Climb the bell tower”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

The cathedral itself is beautiful as cathedrals generally are. What I really loved was the opportunity to climb the bell tower (150+ steps, no elevator), the views over Maribor are fantastic from there, and the exhibition on the clock and the city guards' life is also very interesting.

“Lovely church in the heart of Maribor.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

The church is lovely and has some interesting history. They also do music performances in there which has good acoustics. A must see for tourists.

“The oldest church in Maribor”
Reviewed July 15, 2008

As a citizen of Maribor city I must say that the Chatedral is part of my environment and that's why it is not so enraptured with. But if I'm looking from other perspective is Cathedral one nice remarkableness of Maribor city. The architecture is not so glorious, like cathedrals in other towns. It's much smaller and modest. That fall in with fact that Maribor was long time small insignificant town. Church arhitecture is mixture of many diffrent styles - baroque, romanesque and gothic style. I liked the medieval tombstones on the outside walls of cathedral. But other things - for example inside of cathedral did't impress me much.
If you are once in Maribor and want to see Cathedral you really must not forget to climb up to the bell tower. From there is really wonderful view to old part of Maribor. But unfortunately is climbing possible just upon previous arrangement.
To sum up Cathedral is the oldest church in town and that makes it one of the most significant attractions in Maribor. Otherwise is in my opinion nothing special.
