Adventurous visit to interesting nearby sights

The Aljmaš mountains are a part of the village of Aljmaš, with the famous shrine of Our Lady of Refuge where thousands of believers make a pilgrimage every year. Located near the confluence of the Drava and Danube, Aljmaš has developed tourism from seekers of rural surroundings, hunting and fishing.

There you can taste fine wine and try specialties of the local kitchens, then head to the environmentally education path from Poric to Erdut. It is a 12-kilometer-long trail that leads along the Danube through beautiful nature connecting these two places.

Fans of active holidays will also be interesting in the fact that the Danube Cycling Route (EV6) passes through Aljmaš connecting 10 European countries, 4 UNSECO sites and 6 European rivers!

Erdut, surrounded by the Danube on three sides, enchants with its beautiful landscapes, flourishing vineyards, and orchards. Be sure to visit the Adamovic-Cseh castle and the medieval Erdut tower.

Allow the paths to take you beyond the Erdut area to Osijek, Vukovar, Vinkovci and Djakovo!

Osijek (25km from Aljmaš) will astonish you with its amazing parks, walkway along the Drava river, Art Nouveau buildings on European avenues and a fortress that hides a handful of interesting historical stories. Nearby, there lies the Kopacki rit nature park, one of the most important wetlands in Europe, and a picnic area in rural Zlatna Greda, an excellent area for lovers of nature, adrenaline, and good food.
