Fodor's Review

On the northern slopes of the Krndija hills, the sleepy town of Našice makes a lovely day-trip from Osijek. It is a popular hunting and fishing ground, home to a Gothic-Baroque Franciscan Monastery and a medieval church built by the Knights Templar. It's also where you'll find the most beautiful manor in Slavonia, the Dvorac Pejačević (Pejačević Palace), once owned by the noble, powerful Pejačević family, who were given ownership of the town by the Habsburgs as thanks for their support during the Ottoman wars. The massive baroque building, which dates to 1812 and is surrounded by a lovely and spacious English-style garden, is now the site of the Našice Regional Museum, which has impressive exhibits on the history of the surrounding area from ancient times to World War II. The collection includes everything from displays of ancient archaeological fragments and 16th-century coins, to the bygone equipment of the local fire brigade, to an ethnographic exhibit of a typical room from a turn-of-the-20th-century peasant home.There are four attractive memorial rooms dedicated to distinguished Croatian artists, including Dora Pejačević, Croatia's first female composer. There are several trains each day to Našice from Osijek (45-60 minutes).
