The eastern Croatian region of Slavonia has recently got its second cornfield labyrinth – a tourist attraction aimed at promoting field fun activities.
Last summer the first cornfield labyrinth opened in Osijek. Cornfield Labyrinth Osijek was the brainchild of the association Creative Recreation, whose aim was to not only promote a healthy lifestyle and spending time outdoors in nature, but also to highlight the importance of organic farming and seeing the development of nature through the seasons.
Located just 10 minutes from the centre of Osijek on the left side of the Drava bank at Tvrđavica, the labyrinth offers a unique maze experience for both kids and grown ups.
The labyrinth is open from 17:00 to 20:00 weekdays, and in shifts during the weekend from 09:00 to 13:00 and 17:00 to 20:00. Admission is 10 kuna (1.30 euros) for children and 15 kuna (2 euros) for adults. For more details visit the official Facebook page.
Another cornfield labyrinth has opened this summer also in Slavonia, half way between the towns of Požega and Pleternica, and is already proving popular.
Cornfield Labyrinth OPG Pilaš Viškovci recently opened, providing some fun entertainment for families until the end of October.
The cornfield labyrinth spreads across 8,500 square metres on farm land. For more details you can check out the Facebook page.
There are a number of well known labyrinths around the world which are top-rated tourists attractions, such as Chartres Labyrinth in France and Hampton Court Palace in England, and now Slavonia is putting itself slowly on the map.
