Ptuj is a very pleasant town , like all Slovenian towns seems to be very clean, little litter, little graffitti. There are plenty of bars and restaurants. The town itself is not full of to-die-for sights but there are nonetheless some very pleasant siggts and...More

OK, I’ll admit it. We came here largely because I wanted to say I had been to a place called “Ptooey,” But the area is very pretty and the town center is extremely charming. We stopped by the castle to enjoy the views. Incidentally, the...More
