When I first approached the cathedral, I couldn't enter as a wedding was in progress. Returning I was able to enter and get photos of this lovely church. As with the other Slovenian cathedrals (except Ljubljana) the interior is lightly adorned with statues or gilding,...More

Building is not the best cathedral on the world but it is decent Gothic church with newer furniture and altars. No need to open the doors. Main doors will open in front of you. Some glass windows with evangelists and other saints are interesting, too.

The cathedral is open for most of the day, so you can visit almost any time you want. The main altar is wonderful, giving you a feeling of transcendence. The side altars and emblems give you insight to history of Maribor and Styria.

One of the most important monuments in Maribor, you must see. There is the grave of Anton Martin Slomšek, the founder of Archidiocese Maribor. You can find the statue of him infront of the church.

The Maribor Cathedral looks very large from the outside, but it is moderate in size. Originally built in the 13th century, it has undergone restructuring in past centuries. By many standards the cathedral is plain and modest inside, but parts of it are beautiful.
