Interesting surroundings of Brod
Local area of Slavonski Brod was a ghost town at night although there are a few cheap decent restaurants if you look hard. In the surroundings of the town there are interesting hunting grounds (Migalovci), fishponds (Jelas Polje), and a lake called Petnja. There are also pleasant orchards and vineyards.
We were welcomed with a wine tasting -- local Grasevina, Rhine-style Riesling, and Cabernet Franc, and an assortment of local cheese. All excellent. One of the attractions of Slavonski Brod is a beautiful central town square, one of the two or three biggest in all of Croatia, named after a popular children's writer Ivana Brlić-Mažuranić. This square has a perfect view of the beautiful Sava river. The town is nice and people are friendly.
