Why You Should Visit Pozega
Set inland, Pozega is located in a beautiful valley that has long held agricultural importance for the region. Even the Roman name for the area, Vallis Aurea, literally means “Golden Valley.” Five Slavonian Mountains come together to form this area, making it a stunning destination. When you combine the 800 years of historical and cultural heritage that is celebrated, it is easy to see why this is one of Croatia’s crown jewels.
You’ll find several nice buildings in the central town square when you begin wandering through Pozega. The Franciscan monastery, the Town House, and the Church of the Holy Spirit are particularly notable. There is also a plague column, adding to the beauty and festivity of the square.
Several events and performances that reflect the culture of the community are held throughout the year in Pozega. In March, St. Gregory’s Day brings out a traditional show of mortars and canons that are exhibited on the square. Mortar fire in the surrounding vineyards helps to symbolize the removal of the Ottomans.
June’s St. John’s Bonfire, the Croatian Minute Movie Cup in May, and September’s Fisijada are worth a visit to enjoy as well. And added benefit of an Autumn visit is that you’ll get the chance to enjoy the changing colors of the trees throughout the city.
Spas and wellness centers are available throughout Pozega, inviting you to relax on another level. Several resorts offer full-service treatment opportunities so you can let your stress melt away.
Pozega is indeed located in a golden valley. Take advantage of this opportunity and you will have the chance to create an amazing experience.
