Vukovar-Sirmium County Download as PDF

Vukovar-Srijem County is one of the twenty counties that, together with the City of Zagreb, make up the territorial unit of the Republic of Croatia. In the far east, the peripheral parts of the County are also parts of the state border – the eastern gate of Croatia and the European Union.

The County is increasingly turning to new technologies, knowledge and innovations specialized in the wood-processing and agricultural-food sectors. At the entrance to the European Union, this extremely favorable geographical position is gaining more and more importance through the development of the transport and logistics sector, which abuts on the Danube and Sava waterways, on the Zagreb-Lipovac-Belgrade highway, on the Ljubljana-Zagreb-Tovarnik-Belgrade railway line, and in Osijek Airport in the Osijek-Baranja County which is located within a radius of less than 50 km.
