Sightseeing in Osijek - what to see. Complete travel guide

This town is located near Zagreb; it is a major economic center, which, besides all other attractions, is famous for its beauty and iconic places. Osijek is conditionally divided into three parts: Upper and Lower town, and the fortress Tvrda.
The Upper City will be the most interesting for tourists because all main attractions, popular shopping centers and restaurants are located there. The best shops can be found on the Kapucinska Street. This is the location of boutiques, offering apparel and accessories by popular European brands, as well as rich choice of perfumery and the largest grocery stores. The main square of the Upper City is called Trg Ante Starcevica. Here you can walk among historic buildings, which construction finished in the 19th century.
Narrow streets will lead you to the beautiful park located on the bank of the Drva River. On the territory of the park you will see a pedestrian bridge that allows moving from one bank to another. The Cathedral of St Peter and Paul is one of the main religious attractions. Its construction was completed in 1900; this is a beautiful building in the late Gothic style, and the height of one of the towers reaches 90 meters. Near the central square you can find one more beautiful building - the National Theatre. The building was completely renovated after it had been damaged during the war with Serbia.

Many entertainment centers can be found around the Europska Avenue Square. It is the oldest library of the city. It was opened in 1905, and the Gallery of Fine Arts was founded a year later. The Holy Trinity Square is a great place for walks. Here you can see the monuments and sculptures of the past. In the eastern part of the square is the location of St. Michael Church. The Museum of Slavonia is located just nearby.
In Osijek, you will find a wonderful aquarium opened in 1955, which is a single complex with a zoo. The country's largest zoo has more than 650 animals belonging to more than one hundred different species. Aquarium visitors will discover a no less impressive collection of marine inhabitants, including many rare ones. This landmark is mainly aimed at travelers with children - the aquarium holds informative excursions for children of all ages.
Important religious monument of the city include the Franciscan church and Monastery of the Raising of the Holy Cross. There is no exact information on their foundation. According to some historical data, the monastery was founded in the reign of the Ottoman Empire. Until recently, the historical monastery had been an important pilgrimage center and housed many unique religious artifacts. The religious construction was badly damaged during the hostilities of 1991-1992. Some of the buildings were destroyed, and religious valuables were lost forever. The restoration of the monastery is not yet complete. Some of its priceless artifacts have been survived.
One of the most visited cultural facilities of the city is the Archaeological Museum established in 1877. The museum's founder is the famous merchant Franjo Sedlakovich. His private numismatic collection has formed the first exposition. Since 1946 the museum is housed in a renovated old citadel building. Today, its collection includes several thousand exhibits. Many of them were donated to the museum by wealthy citizens in the 19th century. The archaeological museum has managed to fully preserve its priceless collection of antiquities in the war years.
One of the most beautiful places in the city is a park bearing the name of King Petar Krešimir IV. The magnificent park was founded at the beginning of the 20th century. Today here you can see wonderful century-old trees as well as enjoy rare plants. In the summer, the park is always decorated with chic flower beds and landscape compositions; it has long been considered an outstanding landmark of national importance. In summer, guests of Osijek are equally interested in walking through the charming historic King Tomislav Park founded about a hundred years ago.
