Major attractions in Maribor are grouped around its three main squares: Grajski trg (Castle square), Slomškov trg (Slomšek square) and Glavni trg (Main square), and in Lent, the old river port. Maribor’s synagogue was first mentioned in the year 1429, but for sure it was built earlier on. Occasionally it served as the seat of the supreme rabbinate for Štajerska, which concludes that there was a Jewish community here. In 1501 the synagogue was consecrated as Catholic Church and called All Saints. After 1785 it was turned into and used as warehouse. Next to the synagogue once stood the rabbi’s house, a Talmud school and a graveyard, and down by the river Drava a ceremonial bathing place. Afternoon departure to the Croatian capital Zagreb.
