Slavonski Brod is the sixth largest Croatian city, the centre of Brod-Posavina County, and a river port on the Sava river. It is placed beside Bosnia and Herzegovina border. Here you can see a house of Ivana Brlić Mažuranić, a writer of fairy tales who spent most of her time in Brod. If you get hungry, there is a rich gastro offer in twenty city restaurants. If you get sleepy, you can spend the night in one of the two cities luxury hotels.

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.
Review by Erika
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.
