Visit Orahovica in the heart of Slavonia, a medieval town with mountains, forests and streams. Its south-western part shares a border with the foothills of Papuk and Krndija, that is with the Papuk Nature Park.

In addition to its rich cultural and historical heritage, there is Ružica, a town from the 14th century - the largest preserved fortress complex in the Slavonia area, Stari grad, which has longer walls and is older than Ružica, and Orahovačko jezero (Orahovica lake) – the jewel of continental tourism.

In the mountain area of Krndija, not far from Orahovica there is the famous orthodox monastery of St. Nicholas, built in 1594, and the Merkur health resort on the hill top is a sports and recreation centre.

Come and experience Orahovica – a wonderful combination of plains and mountains, hunting and fishing, traditional dishes and good quality wine!
The features that visitors find most captivating are endless forests of Papuk, extending as far as the eye can see. These woods are mainly mountain beech, but there are also oak, fir and other types of trees. By far the most beautiful part of Papuk is Jankovan park-wood, one of Slavonia’s favourite excursion sites. In a magical valley up in the mountains there are several sparkling brooks surrounded by flowering meadows and dense beech woods. At the top of the mountains is the loveliest of all its adornments: the Jankovac waterfall. There is also a mountain lodge of the same name, regarded by many Croatian mountaineers as the most beautiful and the most comfortable of all of the Croatia’s mountain lodges. However beautiful the woods, brooks and waterfalls may be, what makes this mountain unique in Croatia is its geology. Here, one can see all the ages of rocks, from the Palaeozoic to the most recent Quaternary period. This is also the only Croatian mountain to have an abundance of volcanic rocks. Consequently, here near the picturesque village of Voćin, is where the first Croatian geological park Rupnica, known for the unusual strata it contains was founded. Due to its exceptionally interesting and valuable geology, Papuk has been included in the list of world geological parks, the first such park in Croatia.
