I took it yesterday in the afternoon on my way from Hungary to Italy.In the last 10 years,I travelled through Ptuj hundreds of time but never had the camera with me. I've planned several times to stop to take photos to the oldest town in Slovenia(it obtained town rights in 977) and yesterday I did it.When I stopped it was a sunny day but after 30 minutes these heavy clouds were arrived and this nice haze of rain has been formed.
Some infos about Ptuj: the city is situated in the northeastern part of Slovenia,alongside the Drava river,at 232 meters above the sea level.It has a population of about 23,000 inhabitants.
Its historic centre is filled with beautiful sights and monuments. On this photo You can see in the foreground the so called Drava Tower(the last building on the right). It was built by Italian masters in 1551 as a town fortification.On the left side in the background is visible the top of the Town's Tower,the most imposing town edifice which strongly marks the townscape.
