Some restaurants with local cuisine
Pozega is located in western Slavonia, in a spacious Pozeska valley surrounded by an oval wreath of old mountains Psunj, Papuk, Krndija, Dilj and Pozeska Gora. Pozega as we know it today began to take shape in the Middle Ages. Old Pozega castle was built probably in the 11th century. It was a hexagonal castle situated on a hill in the city center. Pozega has retained its medieval street layout, with the dominant medieval market occurred in the intersection of four access directions (the largest medieval square in Croatia). Bishop’s Palace, former Jesuit College was built in the 18th century as the first example of an open Baroque T-shaped building in Croatian architecture. Cathedral of St. Teresa of Avila was built from 1756 to 1759 to a design by Styrian builders Josef Hoffer and Johann Fuchs.
