    Interesting pages about Osijek, an area I know nothing about. Great Photographs. I was especially interested in the Plague pillar. Lots of military places in this town. Thanks for the information.

    Great pictures, Boris. Eastern Croatia is off the beaten path for most, but it looks interesting.
