Never-ending vineyards, riverside promenades and the amazing natural scenery of Kopacki Rit: these are just some of the wonders of Slavonia, Croatia.
Slavonia, Croatia’s most eastern region, is characterized by flat terrain, numerous rivers, and outstanding natural sights. Untouched by mass tourism, this Cinderella of Croatia maintains its unique character. No matter whether you prefer cycling, hiking, or boat trips, Slavonia is all about spending time out in nature.
Together with my father, I spent a week visiting Slavonia. We found it very different to the rest of the country (as compared to our experiences on this Croatia road trip). It was so much more personal, unexplored, and authentic. Travelling in Slavonia is taking a road less traveled; if you are bored of being surrounded by tourist crowds, Slavonia is your place.
We started our trip in Osijek, Slavonia’s biggest city and the perfect base for exploring Slavonia (use Kiwi.com finding the cheapest flights). During our trip, we visited many cities and inspiring places, most of which are not adequately covered in guidebooks or other resources.
I have compiled this article to give you some ideas about the wide variety of things that can be done in Slavonia, Croatia (including Baranja and Srjem). Find your favorites and start planning your trip!
