Croatian Post Office
Jacobus Hahn was the first Osijek postman back in 1690 when the mail passed to Hungary. During the first half of the 19th century, all the mail in Croatia was under the administration of Vienna and Hungarian post offices. Soon enough Ivan Haramustek became the head of the post office in Osijek, and the city got its telegraph office five years later. Today’s post office building was constructed in Marković Street in 1860, and there are also offices in the Lower and Upper Town. A new post office building designed by Ivan Lay with Art Nouveau elements was built fifty years later. All postal, telephone and telegraph traffic was moved to the main post office.
