Presentation of Popovac

Popovac is located some 30 km north of Osijek and 15 km west of Đakovo. It has about 2,500 inhabitants, in three settlements, some 1,100 in the village of the same name, the others in the two other villages of Kneževo and Branjina. Population includes somewhat over 20% of Serbs and somewhat less than 5% of Hungarians, who name the place Baranyabán, and 1.7% of Slovenes. During the 1990s war, Popovac, as the rest of Baranja, was held by rebels until 1997, when it was peacefully reintegrated to Croatia.
