Maribor appears in recorded history in the 12th century. The city was subject to attack by the Turks, and then governed by the Austrian Hapsburgs until after the close of World War I. Maribor came under Yugoslavian control after a power dispute with the Austrians, and the Germans dominated the area during World War II and became an independent country in 1991.
