Osijek

4.4
Osijek is the fourth largest city in Croatia with a population of 108,048 in 2011. It is the largest city and the economic and cultural centre of the eastern Croatian region of Slavonia, as well as the administrative centre of Osijek-Baranja County. Osijek is located on the right bank of the river Drava, 25km upstream of its confluence with the Danube, at an elevation of 94m.NameThe name was given to the city due to its position on elevated ground which prevented the city being flooded by the local swamp waters. Its name Osijek comes from the Croatian word "oseka" which means "ebb tide". Due to its history within the Habsburg Monarchy and briefly in the Ottoman Empire, as well as the presence of German and Hungarian minorities throughout its history, Osijek has (or had) its names in other languages, notably Hungarian: Eszék, link=no, Ösek, Essec. It is also spelled Esgek. Its ancient name was "Mursa". It's supposed to come from the Proto-Indo-European word *mory (marshland). The same root is perhaps seen in the toponyms "Marsonia" and "Mariniana".
Osijek is in Osijek-Baranja County. With our international travel planner, Croatia vacations can be built around trips to Osijek and other destinations in Croatia.
