Trzin in the light of medieval historical sources

Maister’s evening

From the colorful collection of Primož Premzel, also about the Maister

We will be hosting a well-known Maribor antiquarian, gallerist, publisher and collector, especially of Maribor local history material, Primož Premzel. In his lecture, he will verbally and visually present his research work, his rich collection and his creative path, which has also stopped with Rudolf Maister, often noticeably, sometimes polemically. Mr. Premzl has received quite a few awards for his important activities and achievements, including the prestigious Schwentner Award and this year the Glaser Certificate for Lifetime Achievement.
