Private readings remain among the most popular features of the programme. Similarly, this year, in the shaded seclusion of eight hidden alcoves around Ptuj, we will host the words and poetry of festival guests, accompanied by wines from Ptuj Winery, Gönc Winery and Sauvignon blanc by Verus. Members of DPD Svoboda Ptuj – Teater III will interpret Slovene translations of the poems. Fifteen minutes before the start of each event, we will escort you to those hidden locations from the festival Infopoint at Vraz square (Home of CULTure )
