Full description
Discover Ptuj, the oldest Slovenian town, surrounded by thermal springs, flourishing fields, and vineyards on the Drava Plain. Admire its lovely present appearance which originates from the Middle Ages with the beautiful medieval castle above. For centuries, the fort acted as a guardian for the town below, now it invites visitors with its picturesque appearance. Maribor is the 2nd biggest city in Slovenia and was also crowned the European Capital of Culture in 2012. Spontaneous and relaxed, the attractive city of Maribor has a lot to offer: from gothic and neo-romantic architecture to the romantic Lent Riverbank. The day wouldn’t be complete without visiting the heart of the vineyards - an amazing place to have a glass of wine which is inseparable with the history of the region.
