    Osijek is the 4th largest city in Croatia, with total population of ca
    100,000 inhabitants. It is a city located inland in the eastern part of
    the country on the right bank of the river Drava. Osijek, as a city finds
    it's foundations in the ancient times when Romans established
    colonies in these places. Various cultures have left their mark in this
    city, since Osijek is also strategically well-positioned, and you do not
    have a long drive to neighbouring countries like Hungary, Serbia and
    Bosnia and Herzegovina. In its close vicinity there is a must-see Nature
    Park Kopački rit, also called the European Amazon which was declared a
    part of the Mura-Drava-Danube Biosphere Reserve under UNESCO. The city is
    affiliated with many notable persons such as two Nobel Prize winners
    (Lavoslav Ružička and Vladimir Prelog), Branko Lustig, a Hollywood
    producer and winner of two Oscars (for Schindler's List and Gladiator) and
    Julije Knifer, abstract painter. More interesting and useful information
