    Kopački rit

    This is a wonderful natural resort of intact nature and wildlife. Flora and fauna is so exuberant here. It's a sort of a marsh, with paddles, vegetation in abbundance, typical species of birds, wild animals... You can explore the websotes I indicated, there you will find a lot of information about this gorgeous place!
    The photo is borrowed from there.

    Valpovo is another cute little town, about 20km from Osijek. It has colourful houses, a little river passing through the town, a nice castle, lots of cafes... It's a typical Slavonian plain town. There are even some oil fields around! Thorough information you can find on the website below, there is an English version as well.

    Dvorac (castle) Prandau-Normann

    The castle fortress was built around 15th century. It played a significant role in the history, especially during Turkish attacks, since they ruled these areas in 16th and 17th century.
    Very near the fortress is the Prandau-Normann castle (although it seems like a villa more than a castle to me) and a beautiful park.

    Bizovac is a lovely little town 18km away from Osijek (just a bit over 15 minutes by car). It's famous for Bizovačke Toplice, a spa with hot springs, thermal water which is the hottest in the world, 96 C at the spring!
    There is a nice church park and lots of lovely countryside sceneries. It's a very pretty, relaxing place.

    Visiting the nearby city of Vukovar to see the ruins of war. You must be careful along the way as the area in between Osijek and Vukovar was not de-mined when we were there. (I'm not sure if things have changed by now...) Stay on the roads.
