Osijek - Croatia

Besides cards i also like to write letters. Maja from Croatia is one of my newest penpals and like me, she also likes cards as much she likes letters. She wanted to surprise me and while she was waiting for my letter, she decided to send me this card from her hometown.
Osijek is the fourth largest city in Croatia.  It is the largest city and the economic and cultural centre of the eastern Croatian region of Slavonia.

Osijek remains a popular domestic tourist destination for its Baroque style, open spaces and ample recreational opportunities. The most important sights in the city include the main square, Trg Ante Starčevića, which can be seen on the card. The church on the left is the Co-cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, a Neo-Gothic structure with the second highest tower in Croatia after the Zagreb Cathedral. The tower measure 90 m (295.28 ft) and can be seen from throughout Osijek. - in: wikipedia
