Slovenian Styria (called Štajerska in Slovene) is the southern third of the historic region of Styria. The landscape is a mix of pastoral scenes and industrialized towns and cities. The largest city in the region, Maribor, is one of the former Yugoslavia`s most industrialized cities and was integral to its economy. Today, Maribor and other similarly industrialized towns like Celje and Velenje are crucial to the success of the modern Slovenian economy. Beer and wine connoisseurs will recognize Styria for their aromatic hops, and its Ljutomer Riesling, a delightful palate-cleansing white wine. Rivers that flow in Slovenian Styria include the Drava; the Savinja; and in southern Styria, the country`s longest river, the Sava.
