Gastronomy and wellness oases of gentle landscapes and kind people
Bjelovar-Bilogora County is probably the only Croatian county where you can come from more directions then there are sides of the world, which undoubtedly says a lot about the openness and hospitality of its people. There are far more reasons for coming and staying here than just the blue sky, yellow fields, green meadows, blue fishponds, vineyards, orchards and natural forests.
Our towns and municipalities are picturesque places scattered around the gentle hills of Bilogora, Papuk and Moslavina, each with its own beauties and preserved stories of the past.
In the museums and churches we keep precious treasure – evidence of the existence, duration and preservation of life in this area.
Not only peace and cleanliness invigorate us here. The area of Daruvar has healed the body and mind even at the time of the ancient Romans. With warm baths, mineral mud, massages and walks you will be as good as new. The mild and pleasant climate are waiting for you – as well as hiking trails, cycling, horseback riding. The attractive natural landscape, especially the forest areas, provides an excellent opportunity for a photo-safari and for viewing the wildlife. Around the ponds of Blatnica along the River Česma, included in the ecological network Natura 2000, 101 species of birds can be found. Around the pond there is the Lokvanjić educational trail that stretches for almost three kilometers.
In this area people have always had quality food and drink. On the Bilogora and Daruvar wine route you should taste the light and aromatic wines and also traditional home cuisine, and the other delicacies.
The diversity, the variety of flavors, keeping the tradition of preparing food, using the local produce from Bjelovar-Bilogora farms makes this destination different from others and richer in terms of gastronomy.
Wherever you come, people will show you the hospitality that is in their heart.
