Presentation of the municipality

The municipality of Tabor was a a separate municipality, part of the Maribor Civic Municipality Assembly until 1995. Then it was incorporated into Maribor Civic municipality but reestablished in 1998.

The name of the main settlement after which the municipality is also named - Tabor - comes from the generic term tabor, meaning a fortified encircling wall. The wall after which it is named was built around around St. George's church as a protection against Turkish raids.
