Carnival in the Hotel Mitra: Celebration Accompanied by Scottish Music, Dance and a Glass of Vintage Wine

Kurentovanje – the Significant Ethnological Carnival Festival in the Town of Ptuj

In remembrance of the last but one owner of the Ptuj Castle, the Scottish Earl Leslie, we furnished one of the 29 rooms in the hotel Mitra in a special style. The room is also named after the Earl who bought and restored the castle in the second half of the 17th century. To renew contacts with the distant Scotland the hotel Mitra has invited the Scottish ethno band Pigtown Fling who has already visited our hotel two years ago. They were enraptured by the Carnival in Ptuj and the town itself. This year they will return to Ptuj during Carnival season, from February 20 to February 24, and will entertain you with Scottish folk music, dance and national drinks.
