At the beginning of the August my boyfriend (now husband) and I went to Slovenia for a romantic getaway to the Slovenia’s oldest town Ptuj. The city is located in the Styria Region (Štajerska) in the North-Eastern part of Slovenia and is best known for its thermal springs and annual spring carnival. We spent a weekend at Terme Ptuj enjoying its spa and wellness and exploring Ptuj’s Old Town.
Ptuj has a rich history that can be traced back to the Stone Age. In the Roman Era was Poetovio, as it was called back then, granted the city status. One of the most important events in the city’s history dates back to 69 AD when the Emperor Vespasian (btw, the guy that built Colosseum in Rome) was elected in Poetovio. The first mention of the city is from the same year. Since then, Ptuj lived through interesting history and developed into an important economic and administrative centre of the region.
We spent most of our time enjoying at the spa and wellness of Terme Ptuj. We soaked at the jacuzzis, swam at the pools, sledded down the pool slides, got a couples massage and had a romantic thermal baths experience.
While we spent days soaking in the thermal water, we spent the evenings strolling around Ptuj’s charming Old Town. A perfect romantic getaway.
