Photographer's Note

The historical baroque centre of Vukovar is what provides the recognisable visual identity of the city. The centre of Old Vukovar is recognisable by houses with baroque arches built in the typical style of Maria Theresa period provincial baroque. Those used to be craftsmen shops and stores which were a clear representation of the economic power of the citizens of Vukovar. At the same time as the recognisable baroque construction of Old Vukovar in the 18th century, with noticeable distinctions in style, the area of New Vukovar was also developing. Most of the buildings in that part of the city on the left bank of the Vuka bear the marks of clean and restrained late-baroque classicism. This complete baroque whole has remained a dominant stylistic layer in historic Vukovar to this day, with numerous architectural monuments of exceptionally high visual artistic and ambient value. The core of the city centre is protected as an urban historical entity.
