Ptuj castle is a town crown. Climbing up to the hill means a short walk from the city in good shoes. No high heels at all. You can stop at the terrace with view or buy tickets for the museum. First part with different kurenti...More

It is quite a hike to get up the hill to the castle but you have a choice of stairs or step-free access. Still, the cobbles are quite a work. Views of the town and the valley are lovely. There is also a nicely stocked...More

Stunning views from the top of the hill and from the balkonies of the castle. The castle showcases part of the history that this region has to offer, the pagan traditions of the Slavic tribes, the Roman era, the Habsburg feodals and this all in...More
