The municipality of
Ormož is part of Prlekija – a region between Mura and Drava – and lies between
the Slovenian-Croatian border and Gornja Radgona and Ptuj. Ormož is renowned
for three exceptional features: wine, pristine nature, and its people. These
combine in a wine culture, cuisine, and customs.
Ormož includes the wider territory with the flatland and hills. Archaeological findings place this area among the largest Middle Age prehistoric archaeological sites. Its location above Drava, with a well preserved mansion, park, church, and urban arrangement, is too tempting to miss, and warrants a longer stop with a tour of the local museum collection. Many buildings here have a historical significance, such as the Turkish Gate, the City Gate, and the Hungarian Gate. Parks, greens, and the sports park with a pool are all nicely arranged. Many monuments are well preserved and maintained.
