The group developed the concept of nanotouristic agency with specific INFORMAL and PERSONALISED approach to tourism. It is called Rajzefiber – which means the anxiety before travel (eng: Travel nerves, Travel fever) and was derived from the German word ‘Reisefieber’ that was commonly used between Slovene people, especially those living near the Austrian border, such as the inhabitant of the city of Maribor.

The project was developed as extremely SITE SPECIFIC – not only in terms of experiencing the local environment, but also as a reaction towards many problems that the city of Maribor is facing. It is a kind of URBAN CATALYST, by which we could inhabit unused and empty spaces of the city, promote small economies and give people a professional recognition and a possibility to work (SOCIAL aspect).
