Description

Visit Ptuj castle, now a regional museum with one of the most impressive collections of historical items in the country, discover the beauties of Ptuj, and round the day up with an exquisite wine tasting in one of the most beautiful wine cellars in Slovenia.

Ptuj

The oldest and quite possibly the prettiest city in Slovenia is built upon huge wine cellars on the banks of the river Drava. Laying by the Drava river, Ptuj was an important station on the prehistoric Baltic – Mediterranean amber trading route. Historically, it is one of the most important places in the country, and its 2000-year history can be felt as you walk through the town. You will admire the elegant city squares and townhouses, rich in architectural details and incorporated archaeological pieces. A view from the castle above the city is simply breath-taking.

Celje

Slovenia’s third largest city has been an important place since Celtic and Roman times, and reached its peak in the Middle Ages. Celje was established as the Celtic town of Keleia. It was known for the minting of Celtic coins of the Kingdom of Norik. After the Romans took over the area of Slovenia, the city was renamed Celeia. It became one of the most successful Roman colonies and its Temple of Mars was known throughout the Roman Empire. Celje reached its peak in the Middle Ages, under the Counts of Celje, when it developed into a market town, supported by its own local crafts and manufacturing, a tradition which is still present in Celje today.
