  • The Tvrđa (Osijek fortress) is a large irregular star-shaped fortress that was constructed at the beginning of the 18th century to defend against attacks from the Ottoman Empire. It was one of the largest and most modern military fortifications in Central Europe when it was completed in 1722, and featured buildings built almost exclusively in the Baroque style, as well as four gates leading into the city. Today, only a small part of the walls facing the river with the Water Gate and the water tower remains, along with a larger section of the Crown Fort on the left bank of the Drava river.
  • Located close to Osijek is the Kopački rit Nature Park, one of Europe's largest preserved wetlands. The park is located at the confluence of the Drava and Danube rivers and is home to more than 290 species of birds, including the bald eagle, white and black storks, herons, cormorants, swans, and wild ducks.
