Well, we think that before going out exploring Maribor’s nightlife, a bit of recreation might be beneficial. Also, slogan ZDRAVA ZABAVA translates into something similar to “HEALTHY FUN”, “GOOD-FOR-YOU FUN”.

At Sports hall Vrbanska, only a 7 minute walk from a well-known student meeting place of Štuk.


Every wednesday Erasmus students will be able to play basketball and table tennis with fellow students.


Join Živa every Monday and Wednesday at Sports hall Vrbanska on a refreshing, though intensive, hour-long training, which will leave you feel even younger. Did we mention it’s free?

Functional training consists of several exercise stations, each with it’s own multi-joint movements. All excercises are designed to facilitate everyday life movements by strengthening specific muscle groups. Trainees move from station to station and perform each activity at their own pace.

Prior registration required at ziva@zdravazabava.com



Staying in shape while studying can be challenging, which is why we have partnered with BODIFIT fitness centers with a student-friendly offer that will help you stay lean or get lean.
