Osijek - a great city with plenty to discover!

A bit of a ‘forgotten’ city by tourists due to it’s remote inland position. But that doesn’t mean Osijek is not worth to visit! The town itself is located along the river Drava and is a lively university town and the central town of the region Slavonia. There are several historic buildings to see like the fortress, a museum and several churches. The streets are broad and wide with nice shops and local products.
