Virovitica - CroatiaVirovitica

A town on the northern slopes of Bilogora Mountain in the region of Podravina, 44 km southeast of Koprivnica; elevation 122 m; population 16,167. Economy is based on farming, livestock breeding, forestry, foodstuffs (sugar refinery, production of vinegar, ethyl alcohol, alcoholic drinks, animal fodder), wood and timber (furniture, moulds), metal-processing (fittings, tools, casts), leather (footwear), building material, tobacco processing and printing industries. Cultural institutions: the theatre and the town museum. Virovitica is located at the intersection of the main roads (M3) Varazdin Koprivnica Osijek and (M16.01) Novska Virovitica state border Barcs. It is also the railway junction of the routes Zagreb Koprivnica Osijek and Banova Jaruga Daruvar Virovitica.

Virovitica is an important place in transit tourism because of the intersection of several roads and the railway junction. The town is dominated by the Pejacevic castle; the Baroque-style park next to the castle, arranged at the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 19th century, is a horticultural monument. There are several attractive excursion destinations in the immediate vicinity of Virovitica, the most interesting of them being large fishponds in Razbojiste at the foot of Bilogora Mountain and Milanovac on the wine-growing hills of Bilogora. This mountain also provides excellent hunting grounds (high and small game), while small game hunting and angling are possible along the Drava river.
