History

According to the sign located on the facade above the entrance, the manor was built by count Antun Pejačević in 1804, with the actual construction beginning in 1800.

The Virovitica Estate was acquired by the Pejačević Counts as a grant by the then Austrian Empress and Croatian-Hungarian Queen Maria Theresa in 1750. In the beginning it started out as a relatively small estate.

Architecture

The refined classical manor is composed of three wings shaped in the straight form. The internal space is organised around a central hallway with rooms aligned on either side. The central axis is highlighted by the grand hall and central dome.
