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.
