Slavonia

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).
