City center still retains the charm it had in the Austro-Hungarian times. The city was center of a military district in those time. You can see some nice architecture here, like this park surrounded with Gymnasium and Trade High School building.
Bosut is the river flowing through Vinkovci. It is very slow and often covered with river plants (i wouldn't know the english term). Scenery if very pleasant for the eye. I enjoy walking on the bank of Bosut. It is not for very dynamic people, though.
One of the best restaurants in Vinkovci.
What makes a good restaurant?
For me, part of the fun in eating out is the fact that it’s an unhurried social experience, with plenty of time to interact with your dining companions. There’s something about the restaurant setting that encourages relaxed conversation and enjoyment of food and wine. For this to happen, though, a number of ingredients must be in place. Most of all, I want to go to the sort of restaurant where the proprietor is passionate about food and wine, and whose primary goal is excellence, not making a fortune. Decent restaurants should be cherished and valued, and we should reward them with our custom.
Favorite Dish: Style of food is a largely matter of taste. But whatever the style, I tend to value simple cooking with good quality ingredients over fussy and over-elaborate food.
Due to cold winters and harsh climate, national costumes consist, apart from linen and wool, of fur, and of thick vests, coats and cloaks. Feet are wrapped in linen instead of socks and "opanci" (strapped softsoled footwear) or boots in northern parts are worn. Women's costumes are decorated with floral and animal motifs, with silk or wool red, white or blue embroidery, decorative silk ribbons and bows, lacework, gold or silver jewelry, corals, amber necklaces and pearls. Hair is interwoven into one or two braids and decorated with red ribbons for women that are unmarried, while wedded women wear woven or silk kerchiefs on their heads. Costumes of brides consisted of a crown and a lot of jewelry.
Besides everyday costumes, there are also the so-called golden costumes that are decorated with gold threads. An unusual part of the men's costume is a small apron that is worn over the trousers (in Baranja).
