Slatina is a town in Croatian Slavonia. It is located in Virovitica-Podravina County, at the junction of the Drava Valley and the foothills of Papuk Mountain, in the central part of the Podravina region. It was ruled by the Ottoman Empire between 1542 and 1687, when it was occupied by Austrian troops.
"Slatina" in Croatian means "salt lake". However, there is no more salt lake there.
The peculiarity of this part of Podravina is the distinct natural zonation, which was reflected in the economic evaluation of the region and the role of Slatina. Climatically, the area is located in a circulatory zone of temperate latitudes, almost halfway through the dynamic zones of circulation of cold polar and warm tropical air masses. The result is very frequent and intense changes in weather.
