The archaeological site Vučedol

The archaeological site Vučedol is located along the bank of Dunav, 5 km downstream from Vukovar and it is one of the most important sites of Eneolithic period. Vučedol was first inhabited around 6000 BC, at the time of the appearance of the first European farmers. The time between 3000-2200 BC was the most intense period of its existence. During its days of glory, the Vučedol culture stretched across a large area with a width of 700 km which included ten European states of today: the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro and Albania. Pottery especially stands out in the material culture and its outstanding technological quality and aesthetic values speak of a highly developed civilization. Vučedol ceramics draw attention with a perfect harmony of shape and placement of decorations. The most famous example is the Vučedol Dove, a cult pot in the shape of a bird and richly incrusted, which was found in 1938.

Kopački rit

The greenest waters and forests in the whole of Slavonia are to be found in Kopački rit Nature Park. The park covers the wetland area around the confluence of Drava and Danube rivers, near Osijek, covering a total of 238 hectares, and which, due to its inaccessibility, has remained in the intact state since the olden times. Kopački rit is one of the largest natural wetlands in Europe and as such has been recommended for inclusion in the UNESCO List of Natural Heritage. Large herds of deer are practically a trade mark of Kopački rit, despite the fact that herds of wild boar are just as large. There are other mammals in the park but far more numerous are birds, a total of 300 different species. The most important among them are the very rare and protected species: white tailed eagle and black stork. The park can be easily reached by car from nearby Osijek, the largest town in Slavonia, and visitors can abandon themselves to the primeval ambiances of the wetlands, forests and diluvial fields. The best way, however, to tour the park is on excursion boats which are able to reach even the shallow, swampy backwaters. The beauties of the park can also be enjoyed by the tourists sailing the Danube, the river which marks the eastern border of this truly magnificent nature park.
