Maribor is considered to be a cheerful, friendly city. Some relate this pleasant situation to its extensive wine-growing regions that routinely invite visits from Maribor residents. These vineyards are part of the natural beauty of the city, along with the Pohorje forests, the valley of the Drava river, the Kozjak and the Kobansko ravines, or the Slovenske Gorice hills and fields at the southeast of the city.

This postcard shows a highway junction in or near Birmingham – there is no information about this location. Birmingham is a city and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands, England. Birmingham was at the heart of the UK’s industrial revolution, and its wealth was built upon the multitude of trades that were spawned. This lead to a massive canal network, with more miles of canals than Venice. A fact that often surprises first-time visitors to the city is that it has more trees and open spaces than any other city in Europe.

Birmingham doesn’t have a reputation for being especially picturesque, but there is a lot of interesting architecture in the city centre that the shops and crowds sometimes obscure. For such a (relatively) large population centre, the countryside (in the form of country parks) is surprisingly close. Birmingham’s population is very diverse, and communities from just about any country in the world can be found somewhere. This is turn has led to numerous centres for all the world’s major religions.
