The town of Županja, located in eastern Slavonia around 250 km east of the Croatian capital Zagreb, is renowned for a few things – football, tennis and tambura music…

A monument of the first ever football in Croatia from around 1880, which was first used in Županja, was recently unveiled in the town, and now there plans to pay tribute to the famous music instrument, which is traditionally linked to Županja’s cultural identity.

Županja will soon get its very own ‘Tambura Park’, the only one of its kind in Croatia and the world. The first tambura was played in Županja 150 years ago and it is still popular today. Organisers plan to revamp the unused park at Republic Square in the city and turn it into ‘Tambura Park’.

The idea of the park is to create a public space for relaxing and socialising, which will also have functional, aesthetic, and cultural heritage value, and increase the number of people who are involved in volunteer activities. The park will include walkways and flowers planted in the shape of a tambura. A nice new tourist attraction for the town.
