Osijek-Baranja County, located in the east of Croatia,  encompasses the localities surrounding the lower flow of the Drava River before its confluence into the Danube near Aljmas. The entire Croatian Baranja and a part of Slavonia gravitate to the City of Osijek. That’s why we call it OSIJEK AREA.

With a 4,155 sq. km area, the county area extends from Donji Miholjac and Našice in the west to Erdut in the east and from the Croatian-Hungarian border in the north to Brod-Posavina and Vukovar-Srijem County in the south. Osijek-Baranja County encompasses several larger geographic units: Baranja in the northeast, Podravina and Našice area in the west, and Đakovo region in the south. The County has a moderate continental climate, with long and mild springs and autumns, hot summers, and cold winters. Seasonal average temperatures are around 0.2°C in the winter, 11°C in the spring, 21°C in the summer, and 11.8°C in the autumn.
The area is intersected by 1,702.94 km of roads and 269 km of railroads. Danube and Drava rivers connect this area with the European inland waterway network. With two airports (Osijek and Klisa) in the vicinity of Osijek, the County is connected with the Croatian airport’s network as well.

Baranja – the land of wine

‘The land of wine’ stretches throughout Baranja, like its name, suggests ‘mother of wine’, because in Hungarian, ‘bor’ means wine, and ‘anya’ is a mother. It seems like a sea- although not in color reminiscent of the sea. The Gere winery,…
