Slavonski Brod Things to Do

  • Reconstruction of the fortress

    Since the Yugoslav Army left the fortress ideas for new uses of the fortress began to emerge. As soon as the bombing and war actions around Brod stopped a program for its public use and reconstruction was made in 1994. Finally the fortress could be included in the list of public spaces of Brod, and on the list of its tourist attractions that it...

  • river Sava

    Water, any water is our fundament at least mine and where there is no “a drop” of it I want stay for long. To me water is like tranquilizer.I have to admit that I prefer sea, and Adriatic Sea more than others, but any running water, no matter how big or small, lake even pond can do, oceans too.Slavonski Brod is lying on a north bank of river Sava....

  • Sava river

    Sava is quite a boring river and anyone having ideas of quays and walkways along the river is quite dissapointed in Zagreb or Sisak for instance. There it is still dangerous river that threathens with occasional dangerous floods while for the most time there is not enough water to even see the river. It is not the case in Slavonski Brod that...

  • Inside the church

    If you like 'little flying angels' then you definitely have to go inside this baroque church. Besides the main altar (that is not something special, to be honest) there are eight side-altars in the main nave. Little angels are flying everywhere in the best baroque manner! The best work here was done by local craftsmen Henrik Polszl in mid-18th...

  • Holy Trinity church

    Holy Trinity church was built next to the Franciscan monastery, also by baron Trenk, in 1723. The church is also known as Velika crkva (big church). It has a low bell tower situated on its side facade. The main facade is simple, facing the small square named after the church - Holy Trinity Square. The inside is well worth a look since it hides the...

  • Franciscan monastery

    The Franciscan Monastery in Brod was built in 1727 by baron Trenk, commander of the Brod Fortress. This monastery is one of the finest examples of baroque buildings in Slavonia. A small garden is encircled by strangely proportioned columns that define archway which runs around the garden. On the north side there is a clock and a sundial, made by A....

  • Glacis

    The fortress was surrounded by earthen ramparts and brick built structures, with deep ditches of regular geometrical form that were originally filled with water. Its glacis (artificial slopes of earth, so constructed as to keep an assailant under the fire of the defenders to the last possible moment) are still very impressive. In the 19th Century...

The Cavalier surrounded the central square of the whole fortress on three sides, giving the whole structure the appearance of a single "bastion" and is...

  • IBM cultural centre

    The building of Cultural centre in Slavonski Brod, designed by architect Marijan Haberle in 1858, is among the best examples of modernist architecture in Croatia (if not the best). Pure volumes, space floating through those volumes and columns, ingenious opening towards the Sava river, large glass surfaces,.... this all makes the reason to come to...

  • Very nice architecture

    Its a very nice, at least a century old fire brigade house. Its right next to the historical museuma and VELIKA CRKVA or the main church. On the photo you can still see war damage. During feast and what we call KIRVAJ or the cenebration of the local saint, this square off Velika Crkva and the firebrigade quarters is a place to be.
