Osijek

(190 reviews from 9 attractions)
Sightseeing Shopping Zoos & Aquariums
Osijek is the fourth largest city in Croatia with a population of 108,048 in 2011. It is the largest city and the economic and cultural centre of the eastern Croatian region of Slavonia, as well as the administrative centre of Osijek-Baranja County. Osijek is located on the right bank of the river Drava, 25km upstream of its confluence with the Danube, at an elevation of 94m.NameThe name was given to the city due to its position on elevated ground which prevented the city being flooded by the local swamp waters. Its name Osijek comes from the Croatian word "oseka" which means "ebb tide".Due to its past and its history within the Habsburg Monarchy and briefly in the Ottoman Empire and also due to the presence of German and Hungarian minorities throughout its history, Osijek also has (or had) its names in other languages, notably Hungarian: Eszék,,. Also spelled Esgek. All those names were adjusted variations to the original Croatian given name. Osijek was originally established close to the remains of the old Roman settlement (now within the city urban area) Colonia Aelia Mursa, also colloquially called Mursa Maior, as it was established by Emperor Hadrian.
