SS Peter and Paul

Reviewed By Soccca - Tolmin, Slovenia

The Cathedral is very high and the exterior also looks very nice. The interior didn't impress me so much. Located in a large square it is definitely a wonderful occasion to observe while rela0ing in one of the nearest cafe.

Red Fico

Reviewed By TrevB56 - Camberley, United Kingdom

Simple but self explanatory, car looks in better condition than when it was built?. Seriously though, it is an excellent monument to represent a single action amongst many of the brave people who were resisting another attempt to suppress their freedom

Church of the Raising of the Holy Cross

Reviewed By Robert L - Amherst, Massachusetts

This church has just been renovated, they are still finishing the courtyard. Surrounded by the library, seminary, statues, etc, this is a beautiful church. We heard a brief student performance in the acoustically able sanctuary. Very nice.
Bring binoculars to appreciate all of the details of the altar.

Arheoloski muzej

Reviewed By Josip K - Zagreb, Croatia

The archaeological museum is a part of the Slavonian museum (Muzej Slavonije). It's very interesting to watch at all the exposed materials from times before Christ to nowadays.
This is the cheapest museum in which I ever was at. The standard entrance fee is 10 kunas (about 1.5 €), but for students it's only 5 kunas (about 0,7 €). It's located in the old part of Osijek, known as 'Tvrđa', on the main square, and across it is the other museum, the Slavonian museum.
I suggest you to visit both museums, it's worth the experience.

Kuzni Pillar

Reviewed By ITRT - Virginia

In our travels in Europe, there are pillars dedicated to plagues. They are often dedicated to the Virgin Mary and decorated with saints. The three-sided pillars represent the Holy Trinity. In Tvrđa a Baroque center in Osijak, the square is dominated by the Holy Trinity Monument, erected in 1729. It memorializes the victims of the 18th century plague that swept the city. This pillar has the patron saints of plague: Saint Sebastian, Saint Roch, Saint Charles Borromeo, St Francis Xavier and Saint Rosalia. Baroness Doroteja Petraš, husband of Hussar general who died of the plague, funded the building of this pillar. This pillar reminded me of the plague in Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic.
