THE BRLIĆ FAMILY HOUSE

Our rich history had to give birth to several world-renowned artists. Among them is Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić, a children’s writer and the author of the most significant collection of Croatian fairy tales. 

The historically authentic ambient of the Brlić home, was the place of creation and inspiration for the many interests of the personality who contributed significantly to the public, cultural and political life of the city of Slavonski Brod and the Republic of Croatia.

THE BROD FORTRESS

The Brod Fortress is undoubtedly the most important historic building in the Slavonski Brod-Posavina County. Although located in the very centre of today's Slavonski Brod, its monumental size makes it look almost unreal.

The Fortress, whose construction began in 1751, took almost sixty years to build. It was built upon impetus of Prince Eugene of Savoy as part of a system of fortifications in the north-eastern part of Croatia. Dating back to the same period are fortresses in Osijek, Stara Gradiška, Rača, and Petrovaradin. The Brod Fortress is unique in that it was used exclusively for accommodating military troops, while other fortresses in the region were used for fortifying civilian settlements. For this reason, its size is all the more impressive. The Fortress was designed for accommodating 5.000 soldiers, but it rarely housed more than two thousand. Huge moats, bastions, curtains, hornwork, the "Cavalier", and accompanying buildings stretched over an area of two square kilometres, far surpassing in size the town of Brod which was spreading to the east of the fortress.
