Slavonia

On your trip around the region, do visit Slavonia, which, together with Baranja, forms the easternmost part of Croatia The area is sometimes known as the ‘Breadbasket of Croatia’ and indeed it is one of the most fertile regions in Europe. A number of well-known Croatian attractions are located here, including the Kopački rit Nature Park. As well as being declared a nature park in 1976, Kopački rit was also added to a list of important ornithological areas. It is considered to be one of the most unspoiled fluvial-wetland plains in Europe. As for the biodiversity of the Park, it suffices to say that the list of plants known to grow here is still expanding. The park is only 13km from Osijek, the fourth largest city in Croatia and capital of Osijek-Baranja county. The landscape around Osijek is filled with vineyards, which produce some of the best Croatian wines. You can taste them in the region’s cellars, which they say are some of the oldest in Europe.
