938 bodies were exhumed at the cemetery and 938 white crosses were erected at the site. These are the victims of the Croatian War of Independence. Very sad display, yet so powerful. In the middle part of the cemetery, located on the east side of Vukovar is a monument where an eternal flame burns.

The Odescalchi Castle is the central building situated in the medieval town of Ilok, housing Museum of the Town of Ilok.The Odescalchi Castle is an impressive building built on the foundations of the castle of King Nikola Ilocki from the 15th century. Nikola's medieval castle with the entire Ilok estate, which at the time occupied the greater part of Srijem, were given by Emperor Leopold to Pope Innocent XI Odescalchi and his family as a reward for their help in liberating Ilok from the Turks. The Pope's nephews, aristocrats from Italy, expanded the castle and changed its style. The castle was eventually rebuilt in the Baroque-Classicist style. They developed at the time very modern wine cellars beneath the castle and gave impetus to the growth of viticulture and wine production. After 1945, the Odescalchi left their Ilok estate, and their descendants remain a part of the Italian nobility, living near Rome.
Enter the beautiful Castle and view multiple floors of ancient local history showcased beautifully. You'll see war memorabilia, ancient weapons and tools, it is very educational and well done.

A tour and wine tasting at this old winery was as fun and entertaining a tour as we had hoped for. The tour began with an explanation of the history of the winery followed by a tour of the old brick lined and curved ceiling wine cellar. We then were seated at large picnic style tables and took part in a wine tasting which included detailed information on the wines. After that we took the opportunity to purchase wines at their store. Highly recommended activity.

The museum consists of two floors and an attic with a permanent exhibition. On the ground floor there is a library and a gift shop (be sure to buy something, the prices are very affordable for tourists), and various halls. The first floor and attic show the range of civilizations and life in the Vukovar area from prehistoric times to the present. In the attic, you can see different items used by our grandmothers. The second floor depicts the Croatian War of Independence and everything that was destroyed by it. Adult tickets are 40kn but what you'll see is worth a lot more.

It's a standing reminder of the ravages of war and it's good that the citizens of Vukovar keep this water tower, with it's damage from the shelling of it by the Serbs, as a reminder of what happened to them a short few decades ago.
