Ptuj is a historic gem in northern Slovenia not far from Maribor. Though it's not well known outside of the area, it's a must-see in every local's opinion. The town is big enough to have some bigger new developments, but it's dominated by the sleepy old town and its historic hallmark, the fortified city. A truly beautiful historic gem atop a hill and covered in bright red roofs, it is indeed breathtaking.

Ptuj can offer you a relaxing time away from others; there aren't many people in town and Ptuj is surrounded by vast natural beauty to be explored. Though if you need any help or just feel like a drink, stop in any café and you'll likely be well taken care of and in good company.

The choices for hostels in Ptuj are limited, but what exists is very good, offering refuge to travelers well away from the urban attitude. Ptuj is a good place to stop for those moving at a somewhat slower pace. It's a good area for bicycling and can be reached well from Maribor.

The Ptuj region is worth exploring. Either you can stay in your chosen Ptuj hostel and hike or cycle around for day trips, or you can do a little circuit, possibly camping and staying in the hostels in Ptuj and Maribor. Public transportation in the region is available but limited, though hitchhiking is common.
