ETHNO TOURISM

Ethno villages have started to spring up in the corners of the County away from the main routes where man and nature live in harmony and the tooth of time is visible on every step. These villages stand for the return to one's roots to land and nature, and the local produce you can obtain here (fruits, vegetables, food specialties, bread) exudes health, purity and authenticity. In some villages some families are making huge efforts to preserve the traditional architecture and atmosphere of their farms.

STARA KAPELA

The Eco-ethno village Stara Kapela is situated just forty kilometres away from Slavonski Brod. This fairy-tale like village represents a combination of the desire for the preservation of the ethnological heritage of Slavonia and the consciousness about the fact that a clean and healthy environment is the foundation of a sustainable development. A once nearly extinct village, it was renovated exclusively with old materials and represent the type of a traditional village that Slavonia used to be full of. The wonderful ambience is fulfilled by thirteen kilometres of cycling tracks equipped with all the necessary tourist contents (gazebos – chardaks, informative boards, etc.). Guest can also enjoy horse-riding, as well as riding in peasant wagons and sledges.
