Pozega | Villas, cottages and apartments
Pozega is a beautiful little town in the heart of Continental Croatia. It is surrounded by the oldest and almost all Slavonian mountains, since this region is mostly lowlands and flatlands. Mountains Psunj, Papuk, Krndija, Dilj and Požeška gora are covered in forests and the entire area is completely green during the warmer part of the year. In the nineteenth century one used to call the town „The Athens of Slavonia“ because of a great number of cultural associations, many of which are active even today, among them the town's library, musical association and the firefighting department. Two convents were in charge of the schooling and after the railroad had passed through the town at the end of nineteenth century, the town blossomed even more. Today the rich history is reflected and very much recognizable in the lively squares and the facades of buildings and houses.
