XII. Roman Games

Magnificent Roman Poetovio

Ptuj was a mighty town 2000 years ago: it was first a camp base, and later an important center of trade and craft. During the Roman Games, Ptuj turns into Roman Poetovio.

The city is taken over by gladiators, Roman soldiers, senators, Vestal Virgins, and other representatives of Ancient Rome, putting on one of the largest reenactments of the Roman life in this part of Europe for the tenth year in a row. Over 800 participants will be presenting the life and traditions of Ancient Rome.
