Delicious Wine and Baths in Drava Attract the First Tourists

19th century

The first initiatives to develop tourism in the city appeared back in the second half of the 19th century. “Citizens of Ptuj invited travelers to come and see the remnants of the city’s glorious past, they praised its mild climate and good wines, and recommended bathing the rapid and clean Drava.” (Marija Hernja Masten, Staro mesto ob Dravi)
