    Sensational Slavonia: Danube Kingdom of Food, Wine and Antiques

Sensational Slavonia: Danube Kingdom of Food, Wine and Antiques

  • City: Zagreb
  • Duration: Approximately 11-12 hours in length

Overview

Discover Eastern Croatia, a region with a rich gastronomic heritage and history! Located along the mighty Danube river that connects the valleys and hills, Slavonia is most eastern part of Croatia on the Hungarian and Serbian borders. The region is famous for far-reaching views of the plains, its traditional food specialties and seductive wines. This tour will introduce you with best flavors and sites of Slavonia.

The full-day tour will start from your hotel in Zagreb where you will meet your private chauffeur and start your drive to the town of Ilok. The most eastern settlement in Croatia, Ilok and its surroundings is known for its wine. Upon arrival in the area, first stop is Principovac estate where you will be welcomed with a glass of champagne and a traditional Slavonian cake called Poderane Gace (in English, it means "torn pants"), which will be followed by a short tour of the property.

Tour continues in the Old Cellars of Ilok, the top attraction in this part of Croatia. For more than five hundred years, these ancient cellars have been used for the maturation of high quality wines in the traditional way: in wooden barrels made from Slavonian oak. Before the sightseeing tour, you'll sample the most famous indigenous varietal of Slavonian wine, Traminac.

Sightseeing finishes in the Stari Podrum Restaurant, situated in the very special setting of the former wine cellar that was reconstructed and adapted to the restaurant's needs. The ambience is cozy and warm, with a characteristic Slavonian feeling. Here you will try typical Slavonian dishes such as fish-paprikas and Slavonian kulen (different types of sausages), paired with four 4 different wines.

After lunch, the final challenge awaits: a visit to a family distillery for a tasting of 14 different types of grappa. Then, pleasantly tipsy, you will be returned to your Zagreb hotel.
