Ptuj and Celje - Wine and History Tour

 

Celje

Slovenia’s third largest city has been an important place since Celtic and Roman times, and reached its peak in the Middle Ages. Celje was established as the Celtic town of Keleia. It was known for the minting of Celtic coins of the Kingdom of Norik. After the Romans took over the area of Slovenia, the city was renamed Celeia. It became one of the most successful Roman colonies and its Temple of Mars was known throughout the Roman Empire. Celje reached its peak in the Middle Ages, under the Counts of Celje, when it developed into a market town, supported by its own local crafts and manufacturing, a tradition which is still present in Celje today.

 

Ptuj

The oldest and quite possibly the prettiest town in Slovenia is built upon huge wine cellars on the banks of the river Drava. Lying by the Drava river, Ptuj was an important station on the prehistoric Baltic – Mediterranean amber trading route. Historically, it is one of the most important places in the country, and its 2000-year history can be felt as you walk through the town. You will admire the elegant city squares and townhouses, rich in architectural details and incorporated archaeological pieces. A view from the castle above the city is simply breath-taking.
