City of Osijek
Osijek, the biggest and the capital city in Slavonia, is situated on the right bank of the river of Drava, 22 km from the mouth of the river of Danube. The right bank is a bit higher and because of that it provides a good protection from floods, a suitable crossing over the river of Drava. In the area of today’s city there were several archaeological sites from different pre-historic periods and cultures from earlier Stone Age, over Copper and Bronze to the Iron Age. (from the official city of Osijek website)
Osijek can be reached by car, train, plane or bus.
