Vukovar is a city in eastern Croatia. It contains the largest Croatian river port, located at the confluence of the Vuka and the Danube. Vukovar is the seat of Vukovar-Srijem County. The name Vukovar means 'town on the river Vuka' (Vuko from the river Vuka, and vár from the Hungarian word for 'fortress'). The river was called Ulca in antiquity, probably from the Illyrian language. Its name could be associated with the name of the river Volga. The city lies on important traffic routes. From ancient times, traffic has flowed through the Danube valley through the Vukovar area from northwest to southeast. With the introduction of steamships from the middle of the 19th century, and today with the arrival of tourist ships, Vukovar was connected with Budapest and Vienna upstream and all the way to Romania downstream. In accordance with its position in economic and administrative terms, Vukovar has developed into an educational, cultural and health center.
