can anyone recommend car hire in Osijek?
We are planning to drive to Novi Sad and want to find out if its ok to take the car across the border too.
Try this; www.rentalcars.com/osijek
Make sure the car can enter in Serbia.
thanks a lot. I guess they will be able to have access to all companies in Osijek
ahh there was no results for the dates I needed
Osijek isn't big town and the best is to ask there, there must be option to travel to Serbia too.
thanks a lot
im trying to organise that before I get there.
I have been offered a taxi from Osijek to Novi Sad for 90 euro for 4 adults and a child as another option
Im not sure if its cheap or expensive
Not expensive at all
Another option for you could be to take the bus: There are a few buses from Osijek to Novi Sad per day. I was in Osijek last August and saw them schedulded on the departure board.
It is probably much cheaper and more relaxing than renting a car. Travel time should be just less than 3 hours.
Try this website for more info:
thanks for your answers but we decided to rent a car... it is only £130 for 4 days including everything so its very cheap i think.
Now to decide which places to visit on the way from Osijek to Novi Sad!!
I am pretty sure that you have already Vukovar on your list. It is defiitely a must see town on the way between Osijek and Novi Sad.
Yeh Vukovar is the only one on the list!! that why i was thinking if anyone had more places worth to stop on the way or just go straight onto Novi Sad after Vukovar
I am not sure, how much time you have, but another nice little town could be Sombor in Serbia. It is a bit further north and i am not sure if it makes sense to combine it with Vukovar, as both cities are located on different routes to Novi Sad.
Sombor is well worth visiting for something between 2 or 3 hours. If you have even more time you can continue to Subotica.
In Croatia Vinkovci might be well worth an hour or so. This all depends on your time schedule and route.
i dont know if we can get to sombor or subotica
we arrive friday afternoon and leave on monday evening - so the plan was
arrive 12 noon Osijek and drive straight to Novi Sad, stoping in Vukovar
Saturday spend morning in Novi Sad and later in afternoon travel to belgrade
Sunday spend in Belgrade and travel back to Novi Sad in evening
Monday Drive back from Novi Sad to Osijek for flight at 6pm
i dont think we can fit more in?
I don't think so either. For me it sounds like you won't be spending some time in Osijek? - The town is definitely well worth seeing.
Apart from the VT pages you should check out the free In Your Pocket guides, which you find here:
Visit Djakovo, it has beautiful cathedral and the stud with Lipizzaner horses. Visit Tvrdja in Osijek, old part of town and military fortress. Visit Ilok above Donau and its beautiful old wine cellars. But most of all, visit the nature park of Kopacki Rit in Baranja.
