Maribor to get a NEW cycling section along the Drava embankment
29 March, 2021
The new 900 meter-long section of the cycling path is being built in Melje on the eastern embankment of the Drava River in Maribor. The works will be completed by May.
The Drava cycling route will also be redirected to this cycle path. This will allow cyclists to withdraw from the busy state road in Melj.
Last year, more than two kilometres of trails were arranged along the Drava river. But the new cycling route will in all probability become the most attractive cycle path in Maribor.
The City of Maribor envisioned the entire area along the Drava river – from the Maribor island to the Malečnik Bridge as the Drava promenade. Thus, a walking path, a cycle path and accompanying sports and recreational areas are to be arranged in this area on both banks of the river.
