Picturesque castle above the Ptuj town has protected the settlement underneath for centuries and today still attracts many visitors with its charm. The castle’s position on the hilltop over the left bank of river Drava was strategically important. The oldest archaeological finds date back to the end of the 3rd century B.C. The famous amber road passed right here, under the castle. The Romans conquered the town and built a fortress. The oldest remaining buildings date to the Middle Ages when the town and the castle were owned by Salzburg’s archdiocese. The chronicler of Archbishop Konrad I. wrote in the middle of the 12th century about the walls of the castle that served as defense against permanent Hungarian invasions. Castle custodians were later given the name Lords of Ptuj. The castle itself was rebuilt many times and is an impressive museum today.


Ceremony description

Depending on your wishes the ceremony can be held as it was in the old days. Such a wedding ceremony is something special and will never be forgotten. The bride and groom and their guests are welcomed by the Castle lords and led to the banquet hall where they are met by the guards who will safeguard them all through the whole ceremony. A pianist provides for a comfortable atmosphere. After the ceremony the Castle lords take the newly wedded couple downstairs to the yard where a men with two white doves meets them.

Releasing the white doves symbolizes the commitment between the man and the wife to respect, support and love each other for life. When the wedding doves fly away, a new journey begins - the common new journey of the husband and wife. After this element that invigorates the ceremony and ads a new dimension to it, it is time for champagne toasts. Leaving the castle the Castle lords present the newly wedded couple with a gift. The celebrations may continue at a luxury hotel upon request.
