Psunj is a mountain in the southwestern Slavonia region in eastern Croatia. It is the highest mountain of Slavonia, with the highest peak of Brezovo polje at 984 m.a.s.l.[1] In the north it extends to Ravna gora and Papuk, while otherwise it is surrounded by lowlands. It is located north of Nova Gradiška and southeast of Pakrac.

On Psunj, there is a 128.5 metres tall lattice tower used for FM- and TV-transmission, which was designed by Prof. Marjan Ivancic and built by Mostogradnja in 1962/1963.[2] Originally this tower was completely free-standing. Today it is additionally guyed at its upper section.
