Slavonia

slavonija  

The soul of Slavonia has been tilled by a human hand for over 8000 years.

Shaped by the forces of the mighty rivers Drava, Danube, Sava and Ilova, Slavonia is a mythical region that for centuries has guarded its treasures.

The largest urban centre in Slavonia is Osijek and is dominated by a famous fortress. In a similar way, Slavonski Brod is also dominated by the largest baroque fortress in Europe that was built in the 18th century.

This region is the main granary and farming area in Croatia.
