The main attraction is the river Soča, that has always been an inspiration for poets and other artists, based on it´s magical blue/green shade of water.

Ptuj

Ptuj is a town in northeastern Slovenia, the oldest recorded city in Slovenia. It has been inhabited since the late Stone Age and developed from a Roman military fort. Ptuj was located at a strategically important crossing of the Drava River, along a prehistoric trade route between the Baltic Sea and the Adriatic.

In the early 20th century the majority of the residents were ethnic Germans, but today the population is largely Slovene.
