“Brought the world to her home in Ptuj”

When traveling around the world, Stanka and her husband Igor Benčevič decided to bring some of the cosmopolitanism to their home city of Ptuj. They turned a decaying house on Vrazov trg into a cultural center. The café, sunny patio, and wine cellar called Muzikafe became one of the best known meeting points in the old city center. The creative couple has hosted several renowned world musicians, and every year Stanka amazes the city with the decorations and art that she displays during the Days of Poetry and Wine.
