Vukovar guide

Town located on the border of Western Srijem and Eastern Slavonia, is the seat of the Vukovar – Srijem County. Ever since the 19th century, Vukovar has been a part of important traffic routes, and the Vukovar port became an important trading connection to the world. At Vukovar’s archaeological sites you can find the remains of the life, culture and customs of the Celts, Illyrians and Romans. The people of Vukovar looked up to the Romans when it comes to creating vineyards since the Romans influenced the improvement of the economy by draining swamps. During the Homeland War, in 1991, Vukovar was under military occupation and was subsequently destroyed. The people of Vukovar were taken to camps, where they were tortured. In memory of the victims in Vukovar and the surrounding area, 18 November is declared the day of mourning for the victims of Vukovar.
