The Minorite Path / The Mythical Path / The Mini Path

The Maribor Puppet Theatre is located in the premises of the renovated Minorite Monastery from the 13th century. The complex, which is inhabited by the theatre and also covers the Minorite Church, is an important and interesting record of the history of Maribor. The Minorite Path leads you through the old corridors and basements, all the way to the restored church, while we present you the history of the monastery.

The Minorite Path is divided into three different guided tours, each dedicated to a different age group.  They are called: The Mini Path (3+, 5+), The Mythical Path (9+) and The Minorite Path (12+, 15+).

Discussions on performances

Each performance opens up known and new topics, raises questions and spreads horizons. Therefore, in Maribor Puppet Theatre, after the performance, we organize discussions on performance, involving artists from the performance, specialists in the field of education, arts, psychology and other relevant fields. The discussions are intended for pedagogical workers, parents and all those who recognize theatre as a learning area.
