Photographer's Note

Orahovica lake is the jewel of continental tourism and most popular destination in Orahovica every summer, often called the Slavonian sea. Wooded slopes of mount Papuk are full of fresh water. In that preserved greenness there are many springs of clear water, which bounce along the mountain side. In its base, Papuk forms a wrinkled landscape full of valleys and coves. An idea of building a dam in one of the vallys came to life in 1960s and beneath the ruins of Ružica grad (eng. Rose town) beautiful artificial lake found its home. The Lake received its guests for many years. Every spring bottom of the Lake and its shores were thoroughly cleaned. Visitors can enjoy the clear water, grassy shore, rest in the tree shadows and listen to beautiful bird carol. Nature lovers can climb on steep paths which lead to ruins of Ružica grad.
