JERUZALEM ORMOŽ – THE SUN FAIRY TALE

jeruzalem ormož

Ormož has been linked to Ptuj since prehistoric times. In the 13th century, the medieval town was established by the Lords of Ptuj, known especially for their gradual regain of the land along the Drava River that had been occupied by the Magyars. In order to increase their chances of advancing on the Magyars' estates, the Lords of Ptuj asked for help crusaders who were just returning from Jerusalem. The crusaders erected a church on the freed land and a castle in Velika Nedelja, amidst gently undulating hills planted with vine. The legend has it that they also built the church of St. Mary and embellished it with the image of the Virgin brought from Jerusalem. Since then, the region has been called Jeruzalem also renowned wide and far for its excellent wines. Nevertheless, the wine is just the beginning – there is much more in store for you!
