The business of Ptuj’s merchants flourished mostly due to the town’s location. Especially when it was granted the right of transfer in the 14th and 15th centuries, becoming an international marketplace. Goods from Hungary to Laško and back flowed through. The period of the city’s most prosperous trade has once again confirmed that trafficking is the most lucrative business. In 1490, three merchants from Ptuj (Thumer, Meichner and Swetkowitz) were among the richest nine citizens of Nuremberg.
