We visited Ptuj on the sunday carneval morning and firstly we went to visit the castel. The history of the town and castel was great but I liked the exposition of traditional carneval costumes the most. Those costumes came "alive" after, when we visited the real carneval in the town center.

We had a memorable time at Ptuj castle and would definitely recommend a visit! My review though differs somewhat from the other reviews found here. First of all, while there is indeed a long and steep staircase leading from the town to the castle high on the hill, there is absolutely no need for visitors to climb all those stairs.... More

If you are history lover,than you must visit this place. There is a beautifull view over the oldest city in Slovenia (Ptuj) and Drava river. Inside the castle you can see beautifull furniture, medieval weaponery,16th century paintings, tradicional costumes, etc.

Beautiful, large castle in the city center of Putj. The castle is transformed to a palace with beautiful interiors, but maintained its medieval look & feel, primarily visible in the main building structure with its bailey and curtain walls. Including some historical exhibitions. Nice staff.
