International conference entitled “Promotion of cemeteries and their surrounding territories” will last from 13th to 15th September 2012. The participants are yet to be thrilled with interesting topics and impeccable organization of the event.

As a part of conference, experts will also visit cemetery Pobrežje, Maribor’s oldest working culturally-historical cemetery. We would also like to point out that guided tour in English language will be performed by children from primary schools, who got to know the cemetery when studying English at school. It is a pilot project of passing on of topics and innovative accession to tourism and education by presenting important personalities, architecture, historically interesting tombs and specific historical facts expressed on cemeteries.
