Ivanjski krijes Požega Trg Sv.Trojstva
Ivanje je duboko ukorijenjeno u narodnu tradiciju, a prvi pisani požeški zapisi sežu u 1739. godinu kada su mladi momci pred kapelicom sv. Roka preskakali Ivanjski krijes, piše Julije Kempf. Paleći krijesove u predvečerje blagdana Ivana Krstitelja koji se slavi 24.lipnja, slavenski narodi slavili su i početak ljeta. Posljednjih petnaest-ak godina Požežani su vratili ovu tradiciju na Trg. Sv. Trojstva. Sve okupljene očekuje bogati kulturno zabavni program, te tradicionalno paljenje krijesta.
VELIKA - Northern of today’s settlement Velika, on the south foot of hill Lapjak, there are ruins of a smaller fort – Fort Velika. The fort could have been built in the 13th century and was owned by noblemen Befekijevci of Velika, and after the Turks have invaded the area it was turned into a military base. By its layout, the fort differs from all other buildings in this area, and has a elongated pentagonal layout which consists of a Guard tower on the North and a courtyard on the South.
PAKRAC - The Cave Trbušnjak is, according to recent measuring, more than 200m long and there is a possibility that it is even longer.
The longest cave in Slavonia, 200m long (currently explored), with a huge bat habitat, geologically, hierologically and biologically very interesting, is situated in the wider area of Grahovljan. Cave Trbušnjak is a home to bats who, according to first assessments, count to 3 or 4 thousand. Next to that, discolored cave crabs and several other little animals were also found.
POŽEGA - The Church of St Theresa was built by Bishop of Zagreb, Franjo Thauszy, with his own funds. Instead of renewing the Fort Požega, which he owned, he took the 80 000 forints and transferred it to the building of this Church. The permission to build this church was given by Empress Mary Theresa on 11th July 1754 and decided that the Church of St Theresa of Avil would be built out of the construction material of the abandoned warehouses and Požega’s military barrack. The ground stone was set on 28th June 1756. It took seven years to build the church, and it was consecrated on 24th July 1763 by the aforementioned Bishop Thauszy.

That unforgettable experience is given only by forest paths, country roads, paths through fields and vineyards, and marked cycling paths. On your journey, points of rest can be low lands, forests, vineyards, orchards, but also villages, castles, little churches and chapels, depending on your personal interests.

To see an area from above is an irreplaceable experience. A completely different point of view of the beauty and diversity of a landscape, where it will seem as if the houses, trees and all other visible elements can be placed on the flat of your hand, and the intertwining of plough-fields, forests and rivers gives a visual effect and enjoyment in the palette of colors made by nature.
