Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • I visited ptuj hot Sunday in September last previous stage upon my arrival in maribor, which is only a few kilometres from here. Ptuj is a lovely place with many narrow streets to be discovered, a spectacular view of the drava and a castle perched on a hill very well preserved. Recommend a visit of at least a couple of hours to this little gem.

  • The castle is reached along a covered stairway from the village centre. At the ticket office you can visit the first view regards the quaint customs of Carnival in Ptuj. Then you enter the part of the castle itself. It is a horseshoe-shaped structure made with a little square with a well in the Center and possibility to stop in for a drink at the bar with outdoor seating. The staff, very courteous directs you in the various rooms to visit. Nice collection of musical instruments, period furnishings, well kept, a gallery with interesting paintings. Very nice also the village of Ptuj, small, you visit quickly and is very quiet. Beautiful Riverwalk.
