For an hour and a half we were like Hobbits in Lord of the Rings, threading our way along a subtly-lit path through the stalagmites and a jaw-dropping cavern that I guess would have swallowed the world’s biggest sports stadium.

Tale of Maribor, Ptuj and Wine
Following the trails of oldest vine in the world
Tales of wine making culture and authentic local traditions all wrapped into this charming tour slightly off the beaten track. A unique experience around eastern Slovenia with Ptuj, former Roman settlement and the oldest Slovenian town, Maribor, the center of the region and the second largest city, together with wine tasting of the local brands in delightful local wineries. An adventure full of history, culture and local delights.
A unique opportunity to visit this wonderful part of Slovenia, east of the capital and home to warm-hearted people and beautiful wine roads. From Ljubljana to Ptuj, once a Roman settlement and Slovenia’s oldest town with a rich history and many landmarks to prove it. Some time to explore the city with major historical and cultural attractions followed by wine tasting (optional).
Our next stop is Maribor, the lively center of the Slovenian Styria region and proud owner of the world’s oldest vine.
