Ptuj is the cultural, administrative, economic, employment, educational, and traffic center of the wider region. The city developed at the junction of Slovenske gorice, Dravsko polje, and Ptujsko polje and also covers the area of Haloze to the south. After World War II, the city developed from a small rural town, and with its growth individual areas of the city took shape such as the old city centre where extensive renovations have been made, new parts of the city with apartment buildings and individual residences, industrial areas, and so forth. Because of their historical significance, many buildings in Ptuj are protected as monuments. Near the city, the largest reservoir in Slovenia has been formed by a dam on the Drava River.
