Tvrđa-church of st.Cross

Its a funny story with these arches over the road.Back in the days when the fortress was constructing franciscan church and monastery where not built like a complex.Franciscans wanted to connect church and monastery over this road but they didn't have any permit to build,so they came up with idea to make 2 arches (one arch can be see on photo,and other was is behind me) that will connect those 2 places.They started construction of the arches and with no problems finished it because in that time there was no law that can prevent you from building something over street.

Pedestrian bridge



Art nouveau well,a gift from a noble family Pejačević to the city.It was located in Gradski Vrt (literally translated it means City Garden).When communists came after world war 2 they decided to demolish whole park,and build there a football stadium.To be even worst that park had a title of most beautiful park between Budapest and Istanbul.But although park was destroyed art nouveau well was saved and placed in Upper town in a park not far from pedestrian bridge.

One old picture of Gradski Vrt

Osijek sugar and chocolate factory called Kandit

Factory was built 1920. and it had a name "First Osijek candy factory Kaiser & Stark".It was and still is biggest sugar factory in south-east Europe.It took a lot of damage in World war 2 by US. air bombers in 1944.

Some photos of Osijeks lost industrial buildings

The one every one feels sorry for: Steam mill Union
Located in very center of the city was one of the biggest steam mills in this part of Europe.Built in 1891. it was first steam mill in Osijek.It had few silos and storage buildings (only 2 storage buildings,and one silo still remain today) and also a railroad that was going from main railroad tracks to the center of that steam mill.Some parts of that railroad still exist today.In 1912. there was a big fire in mill and big part of the complex was burnt.Although it was burnt in 1912 it was demolished after 1945. by communists.

Before:
(the silo on the right still remains,but everything else except silo and the villa (called Union) does not exist anymore)



View on the city from smaller silo



Today



It is in bad condition because during the Croatian war for independence (1991-1995) it was constantly bombed since it was a shelter for civilians.But after the war that building does not have any use so it didn't get renovated.
