Opening times, contact, location
The Archaeological park is a part of Botanic Garden od Maribor University. The idea of an archaeological park has its roots in the fact, that Botanical garden lays on the mount graveyard, dated approximately in year 1000 b.c. (late iron age). This area today is a protected archeological heritage site. It used to be the place for burrials, which belonged to inhabitants of well fortified settlement at Poštela, on Pohorje Mount. It was one of the most important cities in late iron age times between the Alps and Pannon region.
Botanical garden offers to its visitors an exhibition of archeology on the site and an archaeological trail. There are over twenty well preserved mount graves in a forested area on the south border of the garden. We take this 'frozen in time landscape' as an opportunity to introduce life in an iron age to wider public. A reconstruction of the mount grave is an option and also a posibility to present burrial ceremony.
Archaeological park has an exhibition, presenting life and customs in late iron age. Archaeological trail is included in the park, where visitors can walk amongst the mount graves. Visit of the archaeological site in Botanic garden is just one of the stops of the archaeological trail, connecting historicaly important sites of Maribor and its surroundings.
