Slavonia, a region of fertile plains, is located in the very eastern part of Croatia, between the Danube, Sava and Drava rivers.
After Dalmatia, Slavonia is Croatia’s largest region.
Numerous baroque mansions and churches, endless plains, centuries-old oak forests, green vineyards and wine cellars filled with Croatian wines can all be found in the region. The most interesting and traditional accommodation in Slavonia and Baranja is undoubtedly the well known rural houses of the region that have preserved the spirit of the past and still look today as they did in earlier times when villagers in folk costumes drove around the village in richly decorated carriages followed by the sounds of the tamburitza (a traditional instrument) and distinctive Slavonian songs.
Besides tradition, these households also offer the kind of hospitality one does not come across every day, together with simple honest hosts offering traditional Slavonian plum brandy (šljivovica), kulen (a spicy homemade sausage), sausage and other renowned Slavonian culinary specialties.
After Central Croatia, Slavonia is the largest Croatian tourist region, encompassing five counties: Virovitica-Podravina, Brod-Posavina, Požega-Slavonia, Osijek-Baranja, and Vukovar-Srijem. In the last few years, tourism in Slavonia and Baranja has been growing because of the tradition and peace it guarantees visitors.
