PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks.

 

Maribor castle is in the north-eastern edge of the Castle square and was built between 1478 - 1483 under the order of Friderich III. It's architecture is a mixture of Renaissance (the bastion 1556-1562) and Baroque (the Loretan Chapel 1655-1675, the Knights' Hall from 1670 and the Rococo staircase from 1750).

 

St. Florian, patron of firefighters is on the pedestal.
