The centre of Vukovar has been adorned with a new attraction – a 3D sign “Vukovar” which is particularly noticeable to guests who arrive in the city from numerous cruise ships.
Vukovar’s natural beauty, baroque features, cultural heritage and rich history provide great tourist potential, which the City of Vukovar, together with the Vukovar Tourist Board, is striving to capitalise on.
Tourism results in the first 6 months of this year show that Vukovar is moving in an excellent direction, because compared to the record pre-pandemic year of 2019, 5% more overnight stays were achieved.
Increases are also recorded compared to 2021, and in the first 6 months of 2022, 70% more tourist arrivals and 37% more overnight stays were recorded in Vukovar.
“We invest a lot of effort and financial resources to make Vukovar as beautiful, clean and attractive as possible, and on that track is also this new 3D sign developed by the City of Vukovar in cooperation with the Tourist Board of the City of Vukovar, and primarily with an emphasis on the Danube, which brings us a really large number of tourists.
We are doing all this with the intention of making the tourist indicators and figures, which are already very good, even better. I am sure that this place on the banks of the Danube will become a recognisable attraction where numerous memories from Vukovar will be created,” said Mayor Ivan Penava during a tour of the new tourist attraction.
