A settlement situated in the triangle among the Drava River, the Danube River and Hungarian border. The district of Petlovac is a part of broader lowland, fertile part of Baranja.
Throughout the history, the village first (during the Hungarian rule) bore the name of Sent Ištvan (Saint Joseph), later to be renamed by German settlers into Flower Village – Blumendorf.
The old village yards bear witness to the floral history even to the present day. There, the inhabitants still nurture entire parks with labyrinths of cultivated flora and bright coloured flowers. Lively, proudly and grandly. The Petlovac style.
