Ptuj Castle (Ptujski Grad), Ptuj

4.4
Rising on a hill along the riverbank and overlooking the town, Ptuj Castle (Ptujski Grad) 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.

  • Absolute beautiful place to explore. Just walk straight from the old town of Ptuj up to the castle. From the castle you have a great view above the ptuj area. Realy nice.
  • The castle is a wonderful place where to spend few hours of relax. There is a nice café in the middle of the courtyard. The place in the summer is breeze. There few wine lives. Finally there is a wonderful view of Ptuj.
