Novi Sad's position at one of the continent's true crossroads and history as a multinational commercial and transit centre has left it endowed with historical and cultural sights that even much larger cities have difficulty matching. Novi Sad has much to boast about, from the imposing fortress on the opposite bank to the churches representing numerous denominations throughout the old town's exceedingly pleasant pedestrian zone to several unheralded but noteworthy museums and art galleries. Our local guide will show us all the „must-see“ locations. After the guided tour of Novi Sad, we will continue towards Ilok. You will have the opportunity to taste wines in one of the famous Croatia wine cellars “Iločki Podrumi” followed by traditional lunch. On our way to Osijek, we will stop in Vukovar which is the biggest Croatian river port located at the confluence of Vuka River in the Danube, a town also known as a symbol of the Croatian war for independence, as it arose from the ashes of the '90s into the proud city that it is today. In the late afternoon hours, we will end this day. Overnight in Osijek or Vukovar.

You will start your morning with the city tour of Osijek. Osijek Pancake - flat, rich in rivers, Slavonia has unique natural wonders and delicious regional cuisine that will take your breath away: endless plains, the intense yellow of its corn and sunflower fields, the flavours of its cuisine that will make all your senses travel... Osijek, the largest city in eastern Croatia, beautifully settled on the banks of Drava River. Osijek remains a popular tourist destination for its Baroque style, open spaces and lots of recreational opportunities. Located in one of the most fertile and most certainly the biggest agricultural area of Croatia, the town is its semi-official gastronomic capital. City tour passes by the Cathedral and the Tvrdja (Old Fort).
