To get the full Croatia experience you need to discover all of the country. Srijem and Slavonia in the east of the country has loads to offer with cities like Vinkoci, Vukovar and Ilok and is a great place to head to with friends for a getaway.
Earlier autumn is a great time to visit. Here are some insider tips:
Wellness in Vinkovci
Nothing is better than a nice massage, a peeling after the summer, deep hydration of the face, swimming in the pool, relaxing in the jacuzzi or in the warmth of the sauna in great company.
Hotel Villa Lenije was created for a wellness day. Combine a relaxing day in the elite part of Vinkovci with a walk along the Bosut and coffee on the Korzo surrounded by the most beautiful baroque buildings in the city.
A real anti-stress therapy, especially for those who come from large urban areas, to get your visit started off on the right note.
Domestic House Lola
Modern and airy interior, a combination of industrial design and minimalism, a gourmet experience in the restaurant, a favourite drink in the cafe, quality rooms – Domestic House Lola is located in the centre of Vukovar’s Baroque core, in the restored palace of the Paunović family from the end of the 19th century and is one of the most attractive places to relax with a coffee or a drink. So if you’re just passing through, be sure to stop by.
The urban face of Vukovar
This is where the popular Croatian borosanas and starters footwear were created. If you are a fan of the urban scene, it is good to know that this city on the Danube is the most beautiful open-air gallery with murals, 3D anamorphic paintings and graffiti signed by famous Croatian and world street art artists.
