Over the years, the Croatian national team has regularly used Gradski vrt for home matches.
How to get to Stadion Gradski vrt
Stadion Gradski vrt is located in the south of Osijek at about 1.5 kilometres from the railway station. The walk takes about 15 minutes.
Osijek’s city centre lies north of the station and thus somewhat further away. Take tram 2 to get from the centre (e.g. Zupanijska street) to the stadium.
