City of Ptuj
Ptuj is the oldest city in Slovenia. It originates back to the Stone Age and was settled by
Celts by the Late Iron Age. By the 1st century BC, the settlement was controlled by Ancient Rome.
In 69 AD, Vespasian was elected Roman Emperor by his legions in Ptuj, and the first written
mention of the town of Ptuj is from the same year. The city of Poetovio was the base-camp of
Legio XIII Gemina in Pannonia. The name originated in the times of Emperor Trajan,
who granted the settlement city status and named it Colonia Ulpia Traiana Poetovio in 103.
The city had 40,000 inhabitants until it was plundered by the Huns in 450.
In 570 the city was occupied by Eurasian Avars and Slavic tribes.
Ptuj became part of the Frankish Empire after the fall of Avar state at the end of 8th century.
Between 840 and 874 it belonged to the Slavic Balaton Principality of Pribina and Kocel.
Between 874 and 890 Ptuj gradually came under the influence of the Archbishopric of Salzburg;
town privileges passed in 1376 began an economic upswing for the settlement.
Ptuj was incorporated into the Duchy of Styria in 1555.Ptuj was a battleground during
the Ottoman wars in Europe and suffered from fires in 1684, 1705, 1710, and 1744.
Ptuj's population and importance began to decline in the 19th century,
however, after the completion of the Vienna-Trieste route of the Austrian Southern Railway,
as the line went through Maribor (Marburg) instead.
