Glavni trg (Main Square)

Glavni trg (Main Square)

The largest of Maribor's squares where history and the hustle'n'bustle of town life flow into one.
At the Main Square you can look at important sights of the old town core, sip coffee and sit out in the sunshine or visit some of the small shops. You can find it in the immediate vicinity of the Old Bridge and the street Koroška cesta and it is one of the most important squares in the city centre.

A historical seal was left on this central square by the historical buildings which still surround it today: the Town Hall, Aloysius Church and Casino. In the centre of the square stands the Plague Column which the inhabitants of Maribor erected in the 17th century in memory of the plague which they survived.

Among the most interesting buildings is the one in the place of the former restaurant Koper where the first Maribor brewery was located and was owned by the Čeligi family for decades. The corner building at the beginning of the street Poštna ulica with the inscription Ludwigshof and the year 1905 was owned by the former milling family Franz who had a big mill in Melje. The mill is today owned by the company Intes.

The house was decorated with apothecary motifs which in former times was the town apothecary of the known Maribor pharmacist Franc Minarik.
