Photographer's Note

Vuka is a river in eastern Croatia, a right tributary of the Danube river. At 112 kilometres (70 miles), it is the 13th-longest river flowing through Croatia and it has a drainage area of 644 square kilometres (249 square miles). The river is located in Vukovar-Srijem County, in the Slavonia region. It empties into the Danube at the town of Vukovar, which got its name from the river.The ancient name of Pannonian Illyrians for Vuka was Volcos.Rivers have always been a source of life, with humans inhabiting their valleys since ancient times. Vukovar has a privilege of having its own two rivers: the Danube and the Vuka. Vuka comprises a natural border between historical counties of Slavonia and Srijem. Although the Danube is the second largest river in Europe and serves as our connection to Europe and the world, people of Vukovar love Vuka as much. It is a small and whimsical river frequented by the local fishermen during the summer and used as a skating ground in winter.
