The Flame of Peace for the upcoming European Youth Olympic Festival arrived in Maribor today. One of the largest sporting events to ever be held in Slovenia will take place in Maribor between the 23rd and 29th of July. The Mayor of Maribor received the flame, alongside skiing champion Ilka Štuhec. Tomorrow, a group hike will take the flame to the Pohorje Hills, and then it will travel on to 27 towns and 18 elementary schools across the country. Organizers hope the flame will spread a message of peace and hope.
