A visit to Đakovo and Vinkovci ・Slavonia Region, Croatia
Đakovo is the second largest town in the Osijek-Baraja County with a population of about 27,000 people. While the town has numerous religious monuments and motifs, Đakovo’s main cultural attraction is the Catherdral (Cathedral basilica of St. Peter) that is also visible as far as the highway as you pass the town from a distance. The Cathedral was opened in 1882, stands at 84 meters tall and 7 million bricks were used to create one of the most spectacular Cathedrals in Europe, inside and out. Right next door is the Bishops Palace.
