The Ptuj Lake is a genuine sea on land. It was formed when the Drava River was damed below Ptuj to serve as an accumulation for the hydroelectric power plant Formin. Measuring 420 hectares, the Ptuj Lake is the biggest Slovenian permanent lake. It is 7.3 km long, in its widest part it measures 1.2 km, its maximum depth is 12 m. Along the lake there are remains of a riverine landscape, which has been protected in the framework of the Šturmovci Nature Park since 1979. It is the home of 230 bird species, among them highly endangered ones, who are dependent on the river dynamics of the rivers Drava and Dravinja. Birds also find a place to nest on the two lake islands, offering home to rare and protected bird species, such as the cormorant, the common tern, the black-headed gull and others.

Along the Ptuj Lake, there is Ranca Marina – the first and the only marina on land in Slovenia. It offers 60 permanent moorings for boats and other vessels with a drift of max 1.3 m. During the boating season – from 1 May to 30 September – visitors can enjoy a panoramic voyage with the Čigra tourist boat, which takes 22 passengers. During the voyage, taking place every day at 5 pm and at 3, 5 and 7 pm on Sundays, you can admire the wonderful sights of the old town of Ptuj and its vicinity. Entry stations are at the marina, at the Gostilna Ribič Inn and in Terme, and since July also in Zabovci. The boat can be hired outside its regular schedule of panoramic rides.

Refreshments are available at the Ranca Bar in the marina, where you can buy different hot and cold drinks, cocktails, snacks and ice cream. For sports enthusiasts there is a playground for beach volleyball, handball or football, where the Beach Master – the biggest international tournament for beach volleyball in Slovenia takes place. On and along the Ptuj Lake there are various interesting events organised: a national kayak championship, the Rancarija event, the Jadro Rance sailing regatta and many other events in the framework of the Summer at the Ptuj Seaside. Every day there are many possibilities for recreation on water or land: water skiing, for which a drag lift is now available (due to a big interest an advance booking by phone is recommended), windsurfing, sailing, kitesurfing, canoeing, kayaking, pedal boats, motor boats and ranch, fishing, beach volleyball, there is a walking trail around the lake, suitable for cycling... Enthusiastic sailors have the possibility of renting two sailing boats J-24 (7.24 m) for the entire day or half a day upon prior notice, accompanied by a skipper or an experienced sailor if requested. The less adventurous can rent a rubber boat powered by an outboard engine or they can turn the pedals of a pedal boat. The Ranca Ptuj Boat Club also rents out canoes or kayaks, making it possible for visitors to row to Terme Ptuj. If you wish the water to carry away all the stress and the strains of your working week, a long ride on the old Drava river bed is the right choice and appropriate recreation for individuals, families and groups. You will also be provided by a transfer of people and all the necessary equipment to the starting point.

Regardless your choice, the Ptuj Lake will delight you – in all the seasons and hours of the day. Romantics are recommended to enjoy the sunset, which is very special on the Ptuj Lake.
