St. Florian Monument -

Patron protecting the city from fires

Ptuj suffered several fires in the 17th century and was almost burnt to the ground, which crippled trade and progress. In constant fear of fire, people prayed to St. Florian and erected a monument to this patron saint on Mestni trg in 1745.
