Osijek
 
Osijek

Osijek is the fourth largest city in Croatia. It is the largest city and the economic and cultural centre of the eastern Croatian region of Slavonia, as well as the administrative centre of Osijek-Baranja county. Osijek is located on the right bank of the river Drava.

The name was given to the city due to its position on elevated ground which prevented the city being flooded by the local swamp waters. Its name Osijek comes from the Croatian word Oseka which means Ebb Tide.

==== OSIJEK - ATTRACTION

Osijek remains a popular domestic tourist destination for its Baroque style, open spaces and ample recreational opportunities. The most important sights in the city include the main square, Trg Ante Starcevica, Tvrda the 18th century Baroque citadel, , the promenade along the Drava (Promenada), and the suspension pedestrian bridge toward Baranja.

The Municipal Park of King Petar Kresimir IV and the Tomislav Park date from the beginning of the 20th century, and are protected national landmarks. Osijek is also home to one of the few Croatian zoological gardens, along the Drava river.
