Echoes of Tradition
Slavonia is a land of legends, with its myths and secrets proudly passed down through the generations. Here the locals fiercely
uphold their traditions, such as harvest festivals, traditional dresses and the popular local music.
They are also generous hosts, always ready to engage in a heart-to-heart over a glass of one of the many quality wines
produced by the area’s fertile lowlands and some of the spicy local dishes such as čobanac (stew) or fiš paprikaš (fish soup).
Where to go
The name “Ergela” [stud-farm] was first mentioned in 1506, although it was founded back in the thirteenth century. The farm has bred Lipizzaner horses since the eighteenth century, and its success has earned it widespread fame.
The romantic old centre of the town gained its basic contours at the beginning of the eighteenth (Baroque) century, combining a military fortification and organised civic life. The only surviving parts of the once-imposing ramparts and city gates are located along the River Drava.
