Vukovar – On two wheels
The Vukovar-Srijem County has began improving the international Danube cycling route ‘Cycling Danube’ with which it will promote recreational cycling among local residents and on an international level promote the area as a cyclotourist region.

The international Danube route, which passes through the Vukovar-Srijem and Osijek-Baranja counties, with a length of 138 kilometers is part of the international cycling route EuroVelo 6 of the ‘European Cycle Route Network’. This route stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea.

During 2005 the 138 km Danube route was re-routed through the Vukovar-Srijem and the Osijek-Baranja County and signs were set. The route through the Vukovar- Srijem County is 54 kilometers long.

The Vukovar-Srijem County is the easternmost Croatian county which has seven rivers running through it: the Danube, Sava, Vuka, Bosut, Bič, Studva and Spačva.

The area of the Vukovar-Srijem County has a long history and heritage. Here is where the archaeological site Vučedol, one of the most important archaeological sites in Croatia, is located, situated along the Danube near Vukovar. Because of the value of its findings it gave the name to an entire Eneolithic culture and is also its origin.

Vučedol was a village of farmers, herders, hunters and processors of copper, which experienced its ‘golden’ era from 3000 to 2200 BC.

In the area of Vukovar-Srijem County the town of Vinkovci is the oldest settlement in the region with the longest continuity of life in Croatia. This is confirmed by a number of archaeological findings, and most interesting among them is Orion, the oldest European calendar, printed on a bowl 8000 years ago.
