The richness of the eastern region of Slavonia has always been measured by the size of the heart. Visitors are treated like kings, and in this part of Croatia, nobody has ever gone hungry.
Every meal is prepared and served with love. The fertile Slavonian plain has always fed its inhabitants, and the area of the Požega valley was called by the ancient Romans ‘Vallis Aurea’ or the ‘Golden Valley’.
If you are a gourmet and wine lover, especially chardonay which has a reputation around the world, the Požega-Slavonia County is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and the eno-gastro manifestation ‘Taste of Golden Slavonia’ is an opportunity to experience it first hand.
‘Taste of Golden Slavonia’ will be held from 4 – 11 November 2017 and provides visitors with a chance to enjoy traditional dishes at promotional prices in seven establishments.
“This week seven establishments in the County have created two attractive menus, one at a price of 65 kuna, the other at a price of 85 kuna.
