Church of St. Michael
The church of St. Michael was built in the first half of the 18th century by the Jesuits. It is located in Tvrđa on Juraj Križanić Square. The bell which echoes through the streets of the city every Friday at 11 am is certainly worth mentioning. Despite the fact that the bell testifies to the liberation from the Turks in September 1687, the people of Osijek have an interesting explanation for the ringing of the church bell – it marked the time of making dumplings, so 11 am was referred to as the “hour of dumplings”. On the indoor main altar, there is a painting depicting the liberation from the Turks. The church is decorated with Baroque elements and details, two bell towers and a wide façade. A special feature of the church is certainly the chalice depicting the life of St. Francis Xavier, with a stamp from Vienna from 1764.
