Osijek guide

Osijek has been a well-known city ever since the Middle Ages when the Romans called it Mursa, Hungarians Eszek and Germans Esseg. In the Middle Ages it developed as a craft and trade city, after which it became part of the Ottoman Empire, and in the 17th century it was part of the Habsburg Empire. In the 19th century Osijek developed in baroque style, and numerous cultural institutions, such as the Co-Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, Croatian National Theatre and the County Palace, were built. Osijek is one of the first cities where the tram started riding. During the First and Second World War, and the War for Independence, Osijek was destroyed, but it remained unconquered. Osijek boasts a large number of cultural and commercial institutions, social events, baroque buildings, promenades along the Drava and a rich gastronomic offer of Slavonian specialties.

You will rarely see a thief or a criminal running from the police in the street because they are almost no such occurrences.
