Cultural events: HISTORY OF NOVO MESTO AND ITS MOVABLE HERITAGE (Exhibition)
Within the framework of European Capital of Culture, The Museum of Dolenjska will present the urn artistry of Novo mesto with an exhibition of documentary photography and a prestigious monograph on urns from Novo mesto. In the early Iron Age period (8th - 4th century BC), Novo mesto was a large center of population with a large fortified settlement on Marof hill, around which several barrow cemeteries and individual burial mounds have been found. The archaeological excavations, which have been taking place ever since the end of the 19th century, have revealed fifty-three earthen mounds with over thousand studied graves from the early Iron Age, which included a large number of archaeological artifacts. Among them, there are nine bronze urns that represent the height of artistic expression of Iron Age Europe. As an important contribution to global cultural heritage, urns from Novo mesto remind us of the important role Dolenjska region had in the first millennium BC in development of European culture. The urn artists from Novo mesto were among the leading creators in a period when European civilization was only emerging. As the keeper of this important heritage, The Museum of Dolenjska strives to present the public the urns whose aesthetic values still shine after so many centuries, even though they were cast in fragile bronze. Opening Hours: Monday-Friday: 9:00-18:00; Saturday+Sunday: 9:00-13:00 in14:00-17:00.

Cultural events: History of the future
History of the Future is a project providing a group of young people from Guimarães and Maribor with a platform, which should deepen their understanding of socio-developmental challenges of their local environment, as well as the challenges on a global and European scale, and improve the quality of their opinion on said matters. The platform was designed to motivate the younger generations to acquire a detailed understanding of their roles in individual local environments, the European community and the global society. The project tackles the issues and pitfalls of development on multiple levels, be it the all­too­common indifference of the younger generation towards socio­political issues or the feeling of unimportance and insufficiency the young are faced with when pondering global changes. The History of the Future project, the title of which was inspired by a book by Father António Vieira, will culminate in a publication intent on finding the answer to a simple question: what kind of History of the Future do the young people from Guimarães and Maribor wish to write today. The young participants have sought a creative answer to the question by employing individual as well as group writing techniques, focusing on dilemmas, possibilities and future challenges. Slovene philosopher Bojan Borstnerand Portuguese philosopher Moises de Lemos Martins contributed their views on the future of our world, with their pieces set to appear in the trilingual (English­Slovene­Portuguese) publication History of the Future, which will be published on the 24th of November, 2012, at the Vetrinj Mansion in Maribor. The publications will be presented by Moises de Lemos Martins, Bojan Borstner, Suzana Ralha and the coordinator of the project from Maribor Urška Breznik with the presentation followed by a discussion on the project, the young and their future.

Cultural events: HOUSE OF ARCHITECTURE, Maribor Architecture Guide (Exhibition)
After Slovenia became independent in 1991, Maribor started intensively to set up profiles of urban and architectural development in the wider region, which is determined by larger cities like Ljubljana, Graz, and Zagreb. With wishes and visions of reformation into a lasting city, Maribor continues the tradition of spatially reasonable development. Maribor’s architecture is becoming architecturally recognizable in the wider area with numerous quality architectural environments and objects: the football stadium, business building Menerga in Tezno, shopping centre Baumax in Tabor, the puppet theatre at Lent, secondary-school centre in Tabor, etc. The guide includes more than eighty contemporary examples of urban interventions and architectures, and shows important buildings from the town’s birth until today.
