JEWEL AT THE HEART OF THE DANUBE
The one thousand year long presence of life in this area, located in what might be called the very heart of the Danube, has always been marked by profound harmony between man and nature.
Kopački Rit nature park is a type of interior Danube delta and the most important ornithological reserve in Croatia – a home to more than 270 species of birds.
From Osijek, a city with medieval heritage and picturesque art nouveau facades, the EV 6 - Danube Cycle Route takes you all the way to Vukovar and the European destination of excellence VUKOVAR-VUČEDOL-ILOK, recipient of the EDEN prize for cultural tourism. The Danube valley is rich with castles, museums, stories and legends. Visit them and discover the mysterious world of Vučedol, enigmatic stories from the past as well as the Vukovar Nocturne.
Taking a boat trip to the village of Nijemci leads you into a whole new world, like a Robinson Crusoe-style adventure. Along the way, you will also enjoy the view of charming vineyards overlooking the Danube, as well as a glass of heavenly wine for every wandering passenger. Mesmerised by the beauty of the surrounding nature, cultural heritage and the taste of excellent wine, plan to stop and stay here for a while, because it is here that the Danube smells like nowhere else.
