Ptuj Castle, Ptuj
(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Rising on a hill along the riverbank and overlooking the town, Ptuj Castle houses a museum that exhibits art, furniture, costumes, tapestries, and everyday objects from the 16th to the 19th centuries. In the western forecourt, notice the tower--the only remaining part of the first fortification most likely built in the 9th century. Archbishop Konrad of Salzburg commissioned the construction of a new castle in the 12th century, but the structure gained its final appearance in the Renaissance and Baroque periods. Explore the collection of musical instruments used by noblemen and wealthy citizens on the ground floor, and head to the second floor to see traditional masquerade costumes on display. Before you head to Ptuj, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Ptuj travel itinerary maker, to make sure you see all that Ptuj has to offer, including Ptuj Castle.

  • Ptuj castle is situated in the centre of slovenian town Ptuj ( Petovia in old Roman times) and give visitor opportunity of greta view all around this beautiful town. And do not forget to visit museum! 
  • What makes the visit to this castle so much fun (even if you go with children) is the variation in the different exhibition spaces. There are for their more boring rooms between with painting and sculpture, but suddenly they are again geboeit by a Hall on local boogieman, the Knight-and armour Hall with Spears and bows, etc ... ideal for a stepping stone on a drizzly day, you'll be a few hours in this also still beautifully restored building with beautiful colonnades on each floor. A must!
