“Ptuj - The oldest town in Slovenia (Poetovia), nestled between gentle wine-growing hills and the River Drava. The castle above the town with the oldest wine cellars dominates over the streets with one of the most colourful carnivals in the world and the Kurenti masks, the exceptional character of which has also been recognised by UNESCO. The Terme Ptuj Spa is nearby. ”

Campground
“In the large water park, there are plenty of fun activities and rides for an adrenaline rush. The indoor and outdoor swimming pools, enormous and exciting water slides, a slow-flowing river and a wave pool are just some of the reasons why you should visit Terme Ptuj.”

Restaurant
“The cosy 'Little Elephant', with an interesting marble fountain out front, serves what many think is the best pizza in Ptuj, along with some meatless dishes such as pasta, plus the ubiquitous range of grills. There's a terrace for the warmer months.”

Chinese Restaurant
“If you need a rice or noodle fix or just a break from traditional Slovenian fare, try the 'Chinese Garden', Ptuj’s long-established Chinese restaurant, just opposite the footbridge over the Drava. It has a fair few vegetable dishes on its menu.”
