Excursion destination Vranjevina - only 4 km from Daruvar (1h walking from the centre), at 291 m above sea level. It is located on the west side of the Papuk Nature Park, near the mountain lodge "Petrov Vrh”. The way is going through the vineyards. Because of its geodiversity Vranjevina is classified as an important geomorphological site. The excursion site is actually a longitudinal terrace surrounded by forests of beech, hornbeam and oak, with the source of the so-called “Sveta Voda” (means "holy water"). Springwater is carried to the edge of a steep cliff where it creates a 20-meters-high waterfall (there are stairs leading to it with a protective fence). Also beside the source is the resting place with tables and benches, and outdoor grills. Both relief terraces offer a great view of the picturesque landscape, fertile fields, villages and forests.
