The Citadel – Tvrđa

Tvrdja

tvrda osijek

Tvrđa, an ancient fortress raised after the end of Turkish occupation, is the historical heart of Osijek town, but people still live there today. Of course, Osijek is very nice outside of Tvrđa, too. Take a sightseeing tram and have a look around. As early as 1884 Osijek had a horse-drawn tram, the first tramcar in Croatia. It was replaced by a red electric tram called munjovoz in 1926. It has been renovated and is now running again! If you get lost anywhere in the town, ask a police officer (pandur) for help.
