Signs of war are visible in the town, houses remain roofless and in ruins. 1998.
The Balkan conflict left its mark on the town of Vukovar. Vukovar's nickname 'Croatian Stalingrad' stems from being devastated by Serb-dominated army forces in the early days of Croatia's war for independence from the ex-Yugoslavia. It suffered a three-month long siege before being captured by Serb forces in November 1991.
