The page Aureus Mons is dedicated to promote active tourism in Požega and its surrounding area, especially cycling on the road and in the mountains, hiking and wandering.
What makes Požega so special is that it is not a typical flat area in Slavonia. Going south from Požega there are slopes of Požeška gora. Although not very steep or high, they are full of vineyards from which you get a wonderful view over the town and countryside. They already have many local and vineyard roads that can be used as cycling and wandering tracks.
About 15 kilometers north there is Papuk. It has already a considerable amount of mountain roads and paths, huts and cycling track.
This page serves to promote this treasure in Požega as well and all the possibilities it offers for active relaxation. We weren't able to present you all these tracks, so we picked the ones most attractive to you with a possibility for its number to be expanded in the future. We did our best to represent them in the most attractive and dynamic way for you to experience that Požega and its surroundings is not just a valley – it is Vallis Aurea and the Golden Mountain.
Share with others cycling and hiking tours you concered.
Put your result on the top-list! All you need is a smartphone or a camera.
