TURISTIČKA PONUDA PUSTARE VIŠNJICA

U prošlom tekstu objavljenom na ovim stranicama predstavili smo Vam naše imanje u Višnjici i dvije tvrtke (Pustara Višnjica i Poljoprivredna zadruga Ergela Višnjica) koje na njemu egzistiraju u simbiozi.

Poljoprivredna zadruga "Ergela Višnjica" nalazi se između obronaka Papuka i rijeke Drave, u neposrednoj blizini grada Slatine, na imanju koje odiše poviješću. O tome zorno svjedoče gospodarski objekti sagrađeni krajem 19. stoljeća, kao i perivoj sa stablima starim i stotinjak godina.

U srcu imanja nalazi se hotel "Višnjica", kapaciteta 39 ležaja, s restoranom i dvije multifunkcionalne dvorane.

U sklopu Poljoprivredne zadruge djeluje jedina ergela arapskih konja u Hrvatskoj. Pored razgledanja ergele i obližnjeg uzgajališta jelena lopatara, posjetitelji mogu naučiti jahati ili, ako već imaju jahačkog iskustva, uživati u terenskom jahanju. Osim toga, imanje pruža idealne uvjete za šetnju, jogging, vožnju biciklom.

Ovoga puta htjeli bi Vam ukratko predstaviti konjičko - biciklističku stazu kao i bližu okolicu sa svojom turističkom ponudom. Naime, blizina rijeke Drave, triju gradova u Virovitičko - podravskoj županiji (Slatina, Orahovica i Virovitica), sa svojim kulturnim manifestacijama, prirodnim i povijesnim znamenitostima, kao i Parka Prirode Papuk omogućavaju dodatnu turističku ponudu Višnjice.

Kao dodatni sportsko - rekreacijski sadržaj naše turističke ponude realizacija je projekta konjičko - biciklističke staze "Od Pustare do Pustare". Stazu čine 3 dionice, ukupne dužine 65 km.

Najvećim dijelom prolazi dravskim nasipom, na području općine Sopje (Virovitičko - podravska županija), čime se uklapa u mrežu europskih biciklističkih staza uz rijeku Dravu.

Staza ima rekreacijsko - edukacijski karakter i obuhvaća prirodne, povijesne i kulturne znamenitosti, a kao novi turistički proizvod u bitnome je unaprijedila ruralnu turističku ponudu naše županije.

PARK PRIRODE PAPUK

Prostire se na površini od 336 četvornih kilometara, a krase ga raznolikost geoloških pojava u rasponu od 3 milijuna godina, očuvana flora i fauna te staništa brojnih životinjskih vrsta. Nedavno je proglašen geo-parkom pod izravnim nadzorom UNESCO-a. Status područja posebne zaštite unutar parka imaju:

- Rupnica  geološki spomenik prirode s posebnim stubastim lučenjem eruptivnih stijena;

- Sekulinačke planine  rezervat šumske vegetacije (prašuma bukve i jele) oaza je netaknute prirode;

- park-šuma Jankovac  jedna od najljepših gorskih dolina na sjevernim obroncima Papuka, okružena stoljetnom bukovom šumom, ujedno i poznato planinarsko izletište. Novouređeni planinarski dom uz restoran nudi i 80 ležajeva, a u neposrednoj blizini nalazi se jedinstveni slap Skakavac (30 m).

SLATINA

Grad je smješten na prijelazu dravske nizine u brdovito područje Papuka. Njenim središtem dominira neogotička župna crkva Sv, Josipa s početka 20. st.

U Slatini se održava Međunarodni glazbeni festival - Dani Milka Kelemena, posvećen avangardnoj glazbi, koji u gotovo tjedan dana odvijanja svake godine u listopadu okuplja velik broj gostiju i izvođača (orkestara i solista klasične glazbe, opernih pjevača, baletnih skupina i kazališta) iz Hrvatske i inozemstva. Slično je i s drugim manifestacijama u Slatini poput Proslave Dana Grada - Josipovo, Smotre folklora, likovne kolonije, Matkanja, Vincekova, Martinja, Slatinskog ljeta i drugih. 

VIROVITICA

Sjedište Virovitičko-podravske županije, smješteno u području na kojem se slikovita Bilogora pretapa u plodnu Panonsku nizinu, mjesto gdje se dodiruju Slavonija i Podravina. Od kulturno-povijesnih građevina ističu se kompleks Franjevačkog samostana i crkve Sv. Roka iz 18. st. Samo središte Virovitice čini dvorac Pejačević s raskošnim perivojem, a gradsko središte organizirano je kružno oko dvorca. Dvorac je sagrađen početkom 19. st. na nizinskoj utvrdi. Danas se u njemu nalazi Gradski muzej a u podrumu dvorca postoji i vrlo lijepo uređen i gastronomski profinjen restoran koji je svakako zanimljivo turističko svratište.

ORAHOVICA

Smještena je na sjevernim obroncima Krndije, a zbog jedinstvenog gorskog okruženja ugled turističkog odredišta stekla je još sredinom 19. st. Gradom dominira barokna župna crkva Sv. Križa. Nekoliko kilometara južno od Orahovice, skriven među brdima, smješten je manastir s crkvom Sv. Nikolaja (16. st.). Najpoznatiji kulturno-povijesni spomenik orahovačkog kraja je Ružica  najveća srednjovjekovna grad-utvrda u Hrvatskoj (13. st.), smještena na brijegu zapadno od Orahovice.

VOĆIN

Gradić koji je smješten u idiličnoj papučkoj dolini kroz koju protječe rijeka Voćinka. Stoljećima je poznat kao hodočasničko mjesto u kojem se na blagdan Male Gospe uz kasnogotičku crkvu Pohoda Blažene Djevice Marije, iz 15. st., okupi više desetaka tisuća vjernika.  Crkvu je tijekom Domovinskog rata srušio neprijatelj, ali se ona sustavnom obnovom metodom faksimilske rekonstrukcije ponovo uzdiže. Lijep voćinski park zaštićen je kao hortikulturni spomenik, a u neposrednoj blizini nalazi se arboretum Lisičine s nekoliko tisuća biljnih vrsta. Voćin je ujedno i jedan od službenih ulaza u Park Prirode Papuk.

Od zanimljivih manifestacija s područja županije valja izdvojiti Pjesme Podravine i Podravlja u Pitomači, proslavu Rokova u Virovitici i Orahovačko proljeće. Ti sadržaji odvijaju se tijekom cijele godine i osiguravaju kvalitetnu i raznoliku  kulturnu ponudu turistima.

Pustara Višnjica svojom turističkom ponudom može se dobro uklopiti i u postojeće gospodarske manifestacije (sajam Viroexpo u Virovitici i sajam vina Slavin u  Orahovici).

The park is spreading over 336 square kilometers. It's adorned by diversity of geological phenomena in range of  3 million years, preserved flora and fauna and a habitat of many animal species.

In the castle's cellar there's a nice restaurant which every tourist should visit.
