Tour of Croatia


The Drava River in Croatia is renowned for being one of the most beautiful rivers in all of Europe. It flows through several countries, including Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, and Croatia, and is the main river of the Drava Valley, an incredibly picturesque region of Croatia. At 1,120 kilometers long, the Drava is a highly navigable river, with a navigation abundance of approximately 2.5 percent on the section from Osijek to Vukovar. Its course varies from lowland to hilly, with a wide, slow-meandering course in its lower parts and a steep slope in its upper course. The width of the river ranges from a maximum of around 400 meters at Osijek to varying widths throughout its course, and it has an average depth of 6.6 meters. The water flow of the Drava is greatly influenced by the unique continental climate of the region, with its highest flow occurring in May and June and its lowest in December and January.

The Riverbed

The riverbed of the Drava is made up of mud and sand and is home to a variety of fish species, including Osman, Carp, bleak, chub, and Zander. It is also a habitat for many birds and other forms of wildlife. The Drava is a popular spot for photography, canoeing, boat trips, and other outdoor activities, and is especially attractive to birdwatchers. The region also boasts other attractions, such as the renowned Drava National Park and the cultural tourism city of Osijek. As the Drava flows through a number of settlements, villages, and cities, including Osijek in Croatia, Garešnica, Donji Miholjac, Virovitica and Legrad in Croatia, Beli Manastir in Croatia and Hungary, Barcsa in Hungary, and Körmend in the four countries of Hungary, Austria, Slovenia, and Croatia, it serves as a diverse and fascinating travel destination for adventurous travelers. Its stunning beauty and vibrant presence in the Croatian landscape make it one of the most incredible rivers in Europe, drawing attention from far beyond the borders of Croatia.
