Numerous archaeological remains prove that the city experienced its first period of prosperity as the Roman town of Poetovio. Explore its beauty with a stroll through the town and visit Ptuj Castle. The Dominican and Minorite monasteries, the Provost church and the old city hall are some of the curiosities of the town, worth seeing.
