- Sakuntala park
The Sakuntala Park dates back to the 19th century, and its name is derived from Indian 5th century literature. The poet Kalidasa wrote the epic of Sakuntala. Sakuntala was a girl who lived in harmony with nature and natural processes. Besides the eponymous statue, in the park visitors can see busts of people who had a major role in the cultural life of the city of Osijek in the 19th century – musicians Franjo Kuhač and Pajo Kolarić, and painters Hugo Conrad von Hötzendorf and Adolf Waldinger. Two sphinx statues located at the park entrance which have a symbolic role as guardians are certainly interesting.
