Bishops and Lipizzaner
Đakovo (Djakovo) is a town best known for the bishop’s palace, cathedral, wine and the noble Lipizzaner horses that are still today bred on many private farms in the surrounding villages…Because your plane from Osijek is leaving in the afternoon you'll have plenty of time for a short visit to the nearby town of Đakovo. Already from a distance while approaching the town you'll see the slim red towers of the neo-Romanesque St Peter’s cathedral, second largest church in Croatia. In the town we’ll visit the world-known farm of the Lipizzaner horses, established by the bishops in 1506. While visiting Croatia in 1972, the queen of England Elizabeth the II had one special wish, also to see the Lipizzaner farm. This event made the farm even more famous. After lunch during which you really should taste the local wine from the surrounding vineyards, we’ll transfer you back to the hotel or directly to the Osijek Airport.
