From the road that leads through the flat fields in Požega in the distance you can see the mountains, which we often forget when thinking about the east of Croatia. Požega is located under their auspices, in the so-called Golden Valley.
The city is situated in between hills and valleys so it has a street layout that is untypical for the region of Slavonia, often seen as endless lowland of fields. Because of that and because of the baroque architecture in the city centre, tourists often say Požega reminds them of some towns they previously visited in Czechia and Austria.
It is also a place where you will very easily make new acquaintances with one of 26000 proud citizens of Požega. Ad a glass of world-renowned regional wines, a pint of locally produced beer, or a platter of the beloved food delicacies and you will soon become real friends.

Požega with its hills and valleys is a well-known cycling destination. Cycling is a great way to stay in good shape and it can be even more interesting when you combine that with exploring the countryside and tasting the homemade products from the many small family farms.
The hillsides are covered in lush vineyards and the valley in-between is fertile farmland, both of which turn golden yellow in autumn, giving the area its nickname – the Golden Valley.
