But the Danube here in Vukovar also forms Croatia's eastern border with Serbia. During the Yugoslav wars in the early 1990s, heavy fighting in the surrounding region resulted in the deaths of thousands and widespread destruction. The war between 1991 and 1995 almost destroyed the town to its foundations. It also destroyed most of the interpersonal and interethnic relationships.
Outside the town, on the banks of the Danube toward Ilok, lies a notable archaeological site, Vucedol. The ritual vessel called the Vucedol Dove (vucedolska golubica) is considered the symbol of Vukovar. Vucedol is also a well-known excursion destination, frequented by anglers and bathers, especially the beautiful sand beach on Orlov Otok (Eagle's Island).
Sports and recreational opportunities are provided at the attractive confluence of the Vuka river into the Danube, on the promenades along the Danube and maintained beaches. Bathing is possible in the summer months. Angling is very popular both on the Vuka and the Danube.
