We arrive in the morning in the oldest settlement in Europe, Vinkovci. Our tour begins at Meraja, the discovery site of a Roman building believed to date back to the 11th century. We continue towards the river Bosut walking past the chapel of St. Roch, a symbol of the city of Vinkovci.
The traditional “Šokačka” street, known as Krnjaš, which lies along the Bosut River, is the birthplace of well-known Croatian writers such as Jozo Ivakić and Ivan and Josip Kozarac, after whom the street is officially named today. Here we can visit the renovated birth house of Ivan Kozarac, the bench monument of the “Škokački Romeo and Juliet” Ivan and Marija Kozarac, and the monument of Josip Kozarac. As we approach the very center of the city with an easy walk along Bosut we make our way to the City Museum. A visit takes us through history as we learn more about the settlement where people have lived continuously for more than 8000 years.
After visiting the museum, we approach the town square, where we can see the votive statue of St. Trinity and the risen monument of the Croatian Ban Josip Šokčević, born in Vinkovci. North of the square is the baroque Church of St. Eusebius and Polyon from the 18th century named after the early Christian martyrs and which is registered as a cultural monument. We make our way to the pedestrian zone, which is paved with motifs of Orion, the oldest Indo-European calendar, making it unique in the world.
Our tour of Vinkovci ends up with lunch, then free time for rest, coffee, and refreshments in the heart of the city. We recommend your try Vinkovci craft beer Valens (named after the Roman emperor born in Vinkovci) in one of the local pubs.
