Đakovo – Đakovački vezovi – an international folklore meeting
Thousands of national costumes from the past, thousands of participants from Slavonia and Baranja, the whole of Croatia, Europe and the world, have for a number of decades brought to Đakovo songs, dances and traditions of their homelands. From 1967, at Đakovački Vezovi (Đakovo Embroidery), in the centre of Slavonia, horsemen and proud Šokci (local name for Slavonians) gather in teams, bringing to life memories of ancient times. Culinary experts and producers of Slavonian delicacies also come here, as well as wine makers with their best wines, so as to show the beauty of the Slavonian region. Painters want to show their best work, while the best organ maestros play on the church organ in the cathedral basilica of St. Peter, better known by the name of the cathedral constructor and the bishop of Đakovo, J.J. Strossmayer. For two weeks in June the streets and squares of Đakovo are full of curious visitors and participants of the tourist- cultural manifestation, which has brought together three traditions of this area: folklore, gastronomy and horse breeding. The 45th Đakovački Vezovi will be held from 18 June – 3 July 2011, when they will end with a spectacular parade of participants.

Đakovo is located in the central part of Slavonia on the Đakovo plains. With its rich history it attracts lovers of heritage as well as lovers of good wine, for which the area of Đakovo is also famous. One of the main sites of this area is also the national Lipizzaner stud farm, founded in 1506. It is worlds famous horse hers, one of the oldest in Europe, which was also visited by Queen Elizabeth II.
