After settling all the other transportation issues like bus, train and car arrangements, there is one more option you should consider: seeing the city of Osijek by renting a bike, then heading out for a longer adventure on bicycle trails that allow you to explore the area surrounding the city 'til your heart's content. There are a few international bike routes in the area that offer you the chance to see a load of cultural sights and meet interesting people along the way.

Another popular option is the Danube Route, a part of the route that goes along Danube from its source in Germany to the Black Sea.
