How to reach us
Maribor is easily reachable by car, being at the motorway crossroad between Vienna, Budapest, Ljubljana and Zagreb. If you plan to arrive by car there are parking facilities
at the conference Hotel City's underground garage for as low as 2€ per car per day.
There are also regular bus links from various European cities, e.g., Flixbus.
If you are interested in travelling by train, Maribor is conveniently situated on the ancient Austrian Southern Railway Vienna - Triest route,
which was opened in 1856. There are connections from other directions in Graz and Ljubljana.
By plane: there are four international airports located within 250km radius: Ljubljana (129 km, all major European destinations),
Graz (58km - the most convenient, major German, Austrian and Swiss destinations), Zagreb (126 km) and Triest (250 km).
I guess there will be more CESCIT participants on the same flights to the nearby airports (there are not very many flights). If you let us know your
travel itineraries we will try to assist you with the logistics.
There are companies that organise transfers to/from the airports, please see, e.g. GoOpti
or GRH. GoOpti, e.g., has three options - VIP, Fix (both with fixed departure time) or Opti - flexible time
within 3 hours. In the latter option, if you are ready to wait a bit, so that they collect more passengers from different flights, it can be considerably
cheaper. They will let you know one day in advance the exact departure time within this time frame. They are reliable and will bring you with vans to/from
Maribor bus station which is less than
10 min walking distance from the City Hotel, and there are also always taxies (Mikro Taxi, Taxi Plus,
Taksi Stajerka,.. should not be more than a couple of EUR).
We arranged with GoOpti, if we can organise groups we can do the joint booking, you will not have to wait, and the costs will be considerably lower.
Another company offering conference transportation is GRH, see their offer
Taxi to/from Graz airport (60km, 35 min) costs 50€, to/from Ljubljana airport (130km, 90 min) 110€, both for up to 8 persons - please book in advance (contact us).
