Explore the City of Vukovar and Its Ancient Culture
The beautiful baroque city of Vukovar, situated at the banks of the Vuka and Danube Rivers in the region of Srijem / Syrmia, saw the worst years of its turbulent history in the last decade of the 20th century. It is slowly but unwaveringly returning to the former glory of one of the best cultural places and can once again look towards a brighter future, despite numerous obstacles. Vukovar city is growing in the arms of its rivers, receiving a new shine and filling the chest with heritage, culture and tradition.
The Vukovar area has always been an intersection of roads, the place where different cultures meet, but also a battleground in wars. The continuity of population in the Vukovar area can be followed for five thousand years through numerous archaeological sites. The Vučedol Culture, which was named after the archeological site Vučedol, located five kilometers downstream on the Danube River, holds particular importance for this area. The Vučedol Dove, excavated in 1938, became the symbol of the city. Also, the Orion from Vučedol, which is considered to be the oldest calendar in Europe, has equal importance.
