The cultural event brings together performances by talented music singers and bands. With great food from local restaurants given it the flavor of “Summer Nights.” With some of the local wineries and craft breweries adding to the event with something that certain element that combines with so much great food. This was the second event of the festival that happens on the last Friday of the Month. If you missed this one there is just one more event happening at the end of August. The city streets were packed and the river Drava along the Promenade was the perfect stroll from the center to Tvdra. The best is that all of the events were free for everyone to enjoy and participate.
With many things happening throughout the night in the city of Osijek it was impossible to be at all the event. It all starts at 7 pm and runs until midnight with the main locations the square A. Starčevića and neighbouring streets.
With many options to start the evening, it was the starting point of the event seeing up-close the historic red tram (Osijek GPP) from 1926 sitting on the tracks. (Osijek has the oldest tram System in Croatia and Southeast Europe since 1884) With Osijek Cathedral as the back drop this was something to see. Organized by the Osijek Tourist Board and Tourist applications Pointers. They made an incredible program that combined the experience real history of being able to board the tram as well bringing modern VR Technology to the scene. Imagine sitting on a wooden bench older than yourself while wearing the VR.
The crowd of people last night had many people enjoying the great taste of Osijek. The square was lined up with little white wooden houses adding character to the event. With some great food, wine and beverages to host the evening festivities. With many wines to choose from its always good to start with white wines and finish with red. There was lots of different food to try walking around and to finish it by trying with Osijek Knedle.
Music and performances in Osijek brought the talent of Known DJ’s to kick off the evening at “In DA Sofa” at Sakuntala Park. This was an area that had some interesting furniture to enjoy the performances and just to hang with friends and family.
