The Zagreb Times Sinke

The region of Slavonia has a very rich soil, and a long tradition of agricultural works. From grapes to crops, everything seems to bloom in the vast fields of this northeastern Croatian part. Of course, the harvesting areas are quite picturesque, especially in late spring. These places have inspired generations of Croatian artists, including poets and painters. As a matter of fact, the raw rural sceneries largely contributed to formation of distinctive artistic schools, such as Croatian naïve.

Photographers are also keen to use their art, inspired with Slavonian outdoors. Our reporter Emica Elvedji went to plains in the vicinity of Osijek, and made an impressive gallery you may see below. Unfortunately, raindrops begun to fall soon, but not before she finished her work.

There are many other things you can do in the lovely landscapes of Slavonia, not to mention that its settlements hide numerous opportunities for fine dining and unique experiences. It is a great alternative to coasts of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia- and is literally available throughout the entire year, no matter the season. Consider visiting during your stay in Croatian territories.
