Vukovar has a new tourism video advertisement presenting the attractions of that eastern Croatian city on the Danube River which, according to the city's tourism board, is attracting more and more tourists each year.

The video ad was shot under the auspices of the city's authorities and the local tourist board and was presented for the first time to reporters this past Wednesday, with Mayor Ivan Penava saying that it was aimed at increasing the number of tourist arrivals to Vukovar as part of the strategy to develop Vukovar's tourism potential.

"All this is in line with efforts to make Vukovar more attractive for tourists, which is a long-standing process. The tourist trade in Vukovar is on the rise and the city's potential in that regard is developing year in and year out," said Penava.

A total of 125,000 kuna (nearly €16,875) was invested in shooting the video, 20,000 kuna (€2,700) of which came from the Tourism Ministry, while the remaining funds were provided by the city's authorities.

Vukovar expects 240 cruise boats this year

According to the director of the Vukovar Tourist Board, Marina Sekulic, the number of bed nights in the city increased by 4% in 2018 compared to the year before, while the number of tourist arrivals remained at the same level.

"With all the visitors that come to Vukovar for one day to visit the Homeland War memorial centre, more than 120,000 people visit Vukovar each year," Sekulic said and added that the Vucedol Museum recorded more than 200,000 visitors since it opened two and a half years ago.

She also said that 231 cruise boats had visited the city with a total of 31,972 passengers and that the city expects 240 cruise boats this year.
