What to see in Vukovar

Vukovar, a city in eastern Croatia, bears the scars of a turbulent past while embodying resilience and hope. Known for its reconstructed facades, Baroque architecture and poignant memorials, it's a place where history, culture and determination converge, telling a compelling story of recovery and renewal on the banks of the Danube River.

Vukovar’s historic centre is a testament to the city's rich history and enduring spirit. Begin your exploration at the main square, Trg Republike Hrvatske, where you'll find landmarks like the Holy Trinity Square and the Franciscan Monastery. Admire the Baroque architecture and visit the Church of St. Philip and James, a stunning church dating back to the 18th century. A poignant reminder of Vukovar's past is the Water Tower (Vodotoranj), which stands as a symbol of the city's resilience. Heavily damaged during the Croatian War of Independence, the tower has been preserved as a memorial to the conflict and now houses a museum where you can learn about the war's impact on Vukovar and its people.

The Ovčara Memorial is a sobering testament to the human toll of the Croatian War of Independence. Located just outside Vukovar, this site marks the tragic events that unfolded in 1991 when hundreds of Croatian soldiers and civilians were tortured and killed at the Ovčara farm. Visiting the memorial is a solemn but important experience, as it pays tribute to the victims and serves as a reminder of the city's painful past. The memorial includes a poignant monument, the Ovčara Cross and a museum that documents the events and honours the memory of those who lost their lives.

The mighty Danube River flows near Vukovar, and taking a cruise along its waters offers a unique perspective on the city and its surroundings. Several boat tours and excursions depart from Vukovar, allowing you to explore the picturesque landscapes, lush vineyards and charming villages along the riverbanks. As you cruise the Danube, you'll have the opportunity to savour local wines and cuisine, often paired with traditional music and entertainment. The region is known for its wine production, and some tours include visits to local wineries where you can taste the renowned wines of Eastern Croatia.
