Hrvatsko Narodno Kazaliste - the Croatian National Theatre was founded in 1907, the building was designed and built in 1866 and is major cultural institution in the town.
The theatre was heavily damaged in fire after Serbian attack in 1991, but now it is completely rebuild.
Slavonians are very hospitable people, very friendly and warm hearted! I was so welcomed by parents of my friend, we had a wonderful lunch and chit chatting, it was very pleasant staying there and I felt at home! I have great friends in Osijek!
The best experience in culture of some place is to be with locals!
The Catholic church is organizing a painting colony, where paintors from the area are working on their art for a bout a week, and then it is sold for charity, for helping poor people. The event is held in the church area, there is a lovely estate and pleasant surroundings.
