Maribor is the second-largest city in Slovenia with about 95,500 inhabitants in 2016. It is also the largest city of the traditional region of Lower Styria and the seat of the City Municipality of Maribor.NameMaribor was attested in historical sources as Marpurch circa 1145, and is a compound of Middle High German march 'march ' + burc 'fortress'. In modern times, the town's German name was Marburg an der Drau . The Slovene name Maribor is an artificial Slovenized creation, coined by Stanko Vraz in 1836. Vraz created the name in the spirit of Illyrianism by analogy with the name Brandenburg . Locally, the town is known in Slovene as Marprk or Marprog. In addition to its Slovene and German names, the city is also known as Marburgum in Latin and Marburgo in Italian.HistoryMediaeval and early modern historyIn 1164, a castle known as Castrum Marchburch was documented in the March of Drava. The castle was originally built on Piramida Hill, which is located just above the city. Maribor was first mentioned as a market near the castle in 1204, and received town privileges in 1254. It began to grow rapidly after the victory of Rudolf I of the Habsburg dynasty over King Otakar II of Bohemia in 1278. Maribor withstood sieges by Matthias Corvinus in 1480/1481 and by the Ottoman Empire in 1532 and 1683.
