The Ptujska Gora Tourist Association is working to revive the traditions and customs of a town that once had lower court and borough rights and was also marked by the Turkish raids.
The town boasts a jewel of Slovene Gothic: the Church of Mary Our Refuge. In 2010, the church celebrated its 600th anniversary. Guided tours of the church can be arranged (tel.: +386 2 794 42 31, fax: +386 2 794 39 91).
There are not many pilgrimage churches in Europe in which the Virgin Mary so generously spreads her merciful cloak and at the same time reigns in such a magnificent sanctuary, which many justifiably call the highest poem of the Gothic, so it is no wonder that 60,000 pilgrims and other visitors visit it every year.
Ptujska Gora is also a popular spot for hikers and bicyclists, mostly because of the wonderful view of Dravsko Polje and Haloze. Special feature:
Visible from afar, the almost 600-year-old Ptujska Gora church is the most valuable jewel of Slovenia’s Gothic heritage.
