  Grad Borl
by croisbeauty

Although the castle is not renovated it worth to see, most of all because of its location on the top of the hill and great sightseeing.
In the first written source the castle is mentioned with two names: Borl and Anckestein, both names (of Hyngarian and German origin) share the same meaning, anchorage or river crossing.
The castle lies on a rocky pier over the Drava river where the Ptuj plain starts rising into the rolling hills of the Haloze region.
The first written document about the castle dates from 1255, when the Hungarian ing Bela IV let Frederick of Ptuj castles Sredi?ce and Borl and the tower Tra.

Directions: approx 10 km eastern from town of Ptuj
