Thursday Doors 13/10/22: Maribor 4.

Let’s continue with our Maribor door tour. Today we reach the park of my childhood where my grandma took me so often. Such lovely memories.

Only about one half of the photos below actually contain a door, but I wished to show you our stroll to the park and The Three Ponds in more detail. This door tour will end next week.

The park is very near the city centre, something which didn’t seem so at all when I was little and spent much time in Maribor with my beloved grandma.

The last photo in the gallery is of the little aquarium and terrarium where she had to take me every time we were near. The news that just a few days earlier the area had been an attempted murder scene did not fit the surroundings. I only had eyes for the memories, and a few doors.

I’m only sorry that I didn’t take a photo of the museum fence which uncle showed me. Instantly I saw it so clearly: little me insisting on walking right there, on the narrow edge by the fence above the sidewalk, no matter that it was a little dangerous. It was okay. I always had a hand handy that supported me and would break my fall.

  1. Thank you for sharing your wonderful memories, Manja. Seems to be the day for it. I’m glad you included all the photos. Doors lead us places, and it’s always good to see those places. And, if you pass a door while walking, I like seeing where you were walking. The scenes you shared are so beautiful. I can see why you were a happy child.

  2. What a beautiful park, enriched by delightful and loving memories. Thank you for sharing them with us. (I particularly love your account of walking on the narrow edge, with your uncle there to help you if you needed it.) Lucky, happy child indeed.
