Further on, we bring you recommendations for places that offer authentic cuisine in Nature park Lonjsko polje. Did you know there is a theme pathway in this area designed to be a reminder of the old way of life? It stretches through north part of Lonjsko polje and its life giving surroundings, vineyard hills of Moslavina and river Sava.
Its purpose is to emphasize differences between past and present, because most pathways that once led over the fields do not exist any more, bridges over rivers have decayed over time, main river channels are regulated, but river branches and seducing places near Lonja are kept. It connects two areas in a new way and tells romantic stories from the past, making the way to replicas of frontiersmen’s watchtowers where service men spent most of their lives.
