Castle Eltz,Vukovar

Currently under reconstruction

Eltz Manor is a castle in Vukovar, Croatia. It was originally built between the period of 1749 to 1751 by the House of Eltz and was gradually extended over time. Eltz is a prominent Catholic German noble family with ties to Croatia since it acquired the Lordship of Vukovar in 1736.
The manor was confiscated by the communists, and the Eltz family had left the country by the late 1920s. In the 1990s, Jakob Eltz returned to the country. The manor, however, suffered a great deal of damage during the Croatian War of Independence, when it was bombarded by the Yugoslav People's Army. It is now owned by the Vukovar City Museum.

The Church of Our Lady of Jerusalem at Trški Vrh

The Church of Our Lady of Jerusalem at Trški Vrh. Built between 1750 and 1761, it is one of the most beautiful baroque churches in this part of Croatia. Although baroque as1 a period in art encompasses the time when feudalism was at its peak, the Church of Our Lady of Jerusalem was built by the pious townspeople and villagers as their votive church. The church was built in order to safeguard a statue of Mary brought from Jerusalem. Even before the church was built, the statue of the Virgin Mary helped many people in times of hardship so the people believed it had miraculous powers. Those miracles were the source of their faith, prayers and gratitude and the reason why they built the church with such persistence. Since 13 August 1761 when the church was consecrated, it has been a gathering point and votive church for pilgrims and remains so even today.
The very serenity and the beauty of the inside of the church are inspiring with its elaborately decorated altars from the Zagreb workshop of Anton Merz, its artistic paintings by Anton Lerchinger of Rogatec, and its organ by artisan Anton Römer of Graz. The church is surrounded by an octagonal wall and a small tower containing a chapel was built on each corner. The chapels are the Chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes, Chapel of St Emerich, Chapel of St Isidore the Peasant and the Chapel of St John and St Paul, the Martyrs. Next to the wall that surrounds the church stands the Chapel of Resurrection, the final of the fourteen stops of the Cross.
In 1898, the parish priest Stjepan Vukovinski had the wall rebuilt. The sides of the wall were once decorated with frescos representing the miracles of Our Lady of Jerusalem. The old frescos were restored by the painter Lovro Sirnik of Trški Vrh.
The wall is used for processions, but it is also a place for individual prayer and the spiritual fulfilling of vows, and it is believed that the Virgin Mary will offer help to all who believe in her.

Ružica grad/Rose city,Orahovica


Rose city is the largest preserved castle in Slavonia and one of the largest in Croatia. The ruins of the castle bear witness to the culture developed in the region since the Middle Ages to the early 20th century.
It is believed that the town was named after the place Duzluk (few miles from ruins) which in Turkish means wild rose.
