Cycling through beautiful fields you will reach the oldest town in Slovenia: Ptuj, which has existed since Roman times. Ptuj has a well-preserved town centre and castle from the Middle Ages, and is also well known for the Kurent - a demonic being which drives away the winter. Relax in the Ptuj thermal spa or enjoy a glass of wine in one of the many wine cellars of the region, such as the Jeruzalem wine cellar in Ormož, the largest winery in the region. After Ormož and Središče ob Dravi, you will reach the Croatian border and finally Varaždin, a Baroque town with lots of young people, music, flowers and cycling. The town, which is fondly known among locals as "Little Vienna", offers a well-preserved town centre with a castle and some beautiful parks.
