Maribor Provincial Museum

The book The Shoemaker



Do you know the story of the shoemaker who saved Maribor from the Turks? In the early autumn of 1532, the city of Maribor found itself in serious danger. In front of the city walls, the Turks found themselves in a beautiful position, having previously tried unsuccessfully to capture Vienna. With the heroism of a shoemaker, Maribor consolidated its reputation as a venerable and upright city with walls that could not be destroyed by anyone's army since then.
