Introducing Ptuj

Rising gently above a wide valley, Ptuj (in English sounding not unlike someone spitting) forms a symphony of red-tile roofs best viewed from across the Drava River. One of the oldest towns in Slovenia, Ptuj equals Ljubljana in terms of historical importance but the compact medieval core, with its castle, museums, monasteries and churches, can easily be seen in a day. There are so many interesting side trips and activities in the area that you may want to base yourself here for a while.
