A day in Vinkovci

If you only have one day to spend in Vinkovci, start your tour from the main park in Vinkovci – there you can visit the Town Museum and observe the Church of Sts. Eusebius and Polion. Then you can continue your walk towards the bridge on the Bosut River and along the river towards Krnjaš – the last Šokci-street in Vinkovci. You should definitively go down to the Bosut River, listen to the sound of sedge and experience the calming effect of this slow river.

Krnjaš is the place where the birthplace of Ivan Kozarac is located, as well as a monument to the platonic love of the Vinkovci version of Romeo and Juliet. From Ivan Kozarac street, turn into Josip Kozarac street, then left – from the back side of the town cemetery, you are on the way to Banja – the favourite swimming place in Vinkovci.

If you visit the town in winter, you can immediately go to the Gothic Church at Meraja, and then through Gundulićeva street back to the central park. Tourist guides will make this walk even more educational and fun. You should taste Valens craft beer from Vinkovci, local šljivovica or Ferbežar medovina (a type of wine made from honey).
