Ptuj, Slovenia’s oldest town, and the area around it
Ptuj is the oldest town in Slovenia. Some two thousand years ago, in the time of ancient Rome, Poetovio was a large town with a population of around 30,000. It was bubbling with life, much like the thermal water that was later discovered on the right bank of the Drava, the river that wends its way past Ptuj. Special energies have always featured in the lives of the locals: Dravus, the energy of the Drava, washes away negative energy; the ancient temples dedicated to the god Mithras help achieve inner balance, and the Kurent brings vital energy and good cheer. Just what the modern-day warrior needs after facing the daily challenges of professional and private life. Find the motivation for new triumphs by relaxing around the Ptuj thermal springs, exercising and enjoying the fine wines from the local hills.
