If you want to get to know Virovitica and its surroundings, then choose the “Virovitica circle” route that will drive you from Virovitica through the nearby villages back to the city. “Virovitica circle” is a 32 km long circular route, and it is completely flat and runs along the entire length of the asphalt. Before you go on the journey, we recommend that you cycle around in Virovitica and acquaint yourself with some of its beauties. Primarily the Pejačević Castle which is the starting and ending point of the route. Also, nearby is the recently restored palace of Count Pejačević, a baroque building built at the end of the 18th century. Right across the road, is the St. Rok church which was built around 1750, and its interior is among the most prominent baroque ensembles in Croatia. But, let’s go cycling!
The route starts in front of the Pejačević Castle and the first 5 km we drive on the main road to Hungary. Pay attention to traffic on this part of the route. From the main road we turn right towards Lukač village and drive straight roads through the village Bačevac to Gradina, where we turn right again, this time towards Suhopolje.
When arriving in Suhopolje, stop in one of the local bars for a break. When you are already in Suhopolje visit the church of St. Theresa of Avila, built in the classical style of the early 19th century. In the nearby park, in the center of the town, is a historicist castle of Count Janković, which is currently undergoing reconstruction. The next stage of the route leads us towards the village of Borova and the slopes of Bilogora, which we drive the next 7km to return to the city.
In the 32 km distance of the “Virovitica circle” you will discover the beauties of Virovitica, the surrounding villages and the beauty of this part of Slavonia. But if that’s not enough, on your way back to Virovitica, you can cycle to the excursion site on Virovitica ponds, where you can visit nine beautiful lakes, and it’s just 7 km from the city.
