But elsewhere in the city also a lot of renovation and restoration. And monuments. Sometimes just by being there. The marina on the river Vuka, for example. It is completely empty. Maybe too new? Or maybe because that border is still in the middle of the Danube? A boundary that turns out to consist entirely of forest. A forest from which the city was shot at.

Or the loess cliffs, about twenty meters high, which can be found between the city center and the neolithic site of Vučedol. Natural monuments that now fall under the Natura 2020 project. We also find such loess cliffs elsewhere in Croatia later on, but then we drive by car and have nowhere to stop, which makes the fact that I was able to photograph them here extra fun.

Or the monument to the victims of the communist terror, a terror of which the Serbian attack on Vukovar was one of the offshoots. Or the mural with the grieving mother among the white crosses - perhaps a reference to the war cemetery.

Interesting geological formations and stark reminder of how cruel people can be to their fellow folks......
