Valpovo is a town in Slavonia. It is located near the river Drava and 25 km northwest of Osijek. The city was first mentioned in 1332. The Ottoman Empire occupied it in 1543. After 144 years of Ottoman rule, Valpovo was liberated and ruled by the Vienna Court Chamber.
The Valpovo area has been inhabited since ancient times, which is confirmed by archeological findings. During the reign of Rome in these areas, from the 1st to the 5th century AD, a military fortress was located here.

The military fortress was constructed as a defense and security against attacks from the enemies. I learnt of the rich history of this place, especially how the Ottoman ruled it for 144 years before being liberated. The archaeological findings bring out the rich history of this place.
