The paths of the defenders of Vukovar

Hard is the story of Vukovar – the hero city, the symbol of Croatian freedom, but this is a story of victory and indomitability of human spirit that shall live forever. The war story of the city begins in the Museum of the War-time hospital, a place which bore witness to the horrors of war. The tank graveyard on Trpinjska cesta (road) , the Hall of Technology – which stood as the line of defence of the city on the Danube and towards Borovo selo (village), and Kukuruzni put (the Corn trail) – the only way in and out of the beleaguered city during the war – are just some of the battlefields where fighting was fierce. In the Barracks, now the Museum of the War of Independence, we can see types of boats and tanks, and on display, in addition to the arms an equipment used by the Croatian armies, are the armaments used by the enemy. The sacrifice of Vukovar shall never be forgotten. A visit to what was a concentration camp, the memorial cemetery dedicated to the victims of war and to Ovčara – the largest mass grave in the post-war Europe, we shall witness the history and pay our respects to the sacrifice of this hero-city and the tragic fate of its inhabitants.

Tour of the Memorial Museum – Vukovar Hospital and video presentation of the war in Vukovar; tour of the main points of defence; encounter with the defenders of the city, defenders- concentration camp inmates; sitting in a tank and getting on a boat.
