Recently, Lynn and I visited Vukovar while on a river boat trip through Eastern Europe on the Danube. This city is to be seen as a memorial more than a typical tourist visit. The Croatian war of Independence reduced this small town to ruins in...More

There are still buildings in town that are riddled with holes made during the homeland war. Sometimes it is a little hard to believe that this war happened in the centre of Europe. Worth a visit. Spend a day or two in Vukovar visiting the...More

There is a white stone Cross Memorial at the junction of the Vuka and Danube rivers. It's solemn, simple and stark. Very Moving. Then at the end of our tour, we saw a rundown, shot-up house with beautiful geraniums in the window boxes, but no...More

We were on a tour when we passed this building. We were told that a picture of this building was featured in the National Geographic Magazine. It is hard to imagine that less than 30 years ago, this town was in shambles. More than 80%...More

This is a harrowing reminder of the evils of war. As one walks through the street, one may not realise this is actually where hundreds of lives were lost, in both sides. It is not a formal museum as one would expect, but rather scars...More

Vukovar was probably the Croatian city most destroyed during the 1991 Serbian-Croatian War. How does one rate a city that was obviously once thriving and lovely and was almost completely destroyed by man's greed and inhumanity and is now struggling to rebuild? Vukovar was included...More
