Noted for its picturesque baroque architecture, Vukovar was a traditional Croatian town, situated at the meeting point of the Vuka river with the Danube. However, in 1991, this all changed with the war for Croatia’s independence, and the town was virtually decimated.

Now, the townspeople have rebuilt many buildings, but an important landmark on the riverbank is the imposing, but evocative, monument in the shape of a cross, raised to commemorate those who lost their lives – a recommended stopping point on your Brabant river cruise.

Perhaps begin your exploration at the Coach Post Building, easily distinguishable by its long colonnade and head into the heart of the town to the Water Tower, a further testament to the war, and a national symbol. The fully reconstructed Castle Eltz houses many cultural art pieces and is a unique museum dedicated to the continuity of life in this area.
