Dominican Monastery information
Just past Sunny Park (Sončni Park) in Muzejski trg is the former Dominican Monastery, which contains the lapidary and archeological collections of the Ptuj Regional Museum . The monastery was built in 1230 but abandoned in the late 18th century when the Habsburgs dissolved the Catholic religious orders.
The beautiful eastern wing has a cross-ribbed Romanesque window and Gothic cloisters with 14th-century frescoes of Dominican monks in their black and white garb. There's also a refectory with 18th-century stucco work, a chapter hall and a large Roman coin collection.
