The Orfejev Spomenik (Orpheus Monument) dates back to the 2nd century.
"The Orpheus monument on the Slovene square in front of the Town's Tower is almost 5 metres high (4,94 x 1,82 x 0,39 m), and is the biggest monument of its kind unearthed in the Roman Province of the Upper Pannonia. Erected on the site where it was discovered, the monument has generated interest since the 16th century, and has thus become a symbol of the town by the river Drava. It got the name Orpheus after mythological representations carved in relief on it".
