The people of the city of Vukovar in Croatia celebrated Vukovar Day, the day of the guardians of the city’s guardians, Saint Philip and Jakov, since 1723.
After a two-year break, the traditional activity to commemorate Vukovar’s birthday was revived on Tuesday.
The day traditionally began with Johann Strauss’s performance of “On the Beautiful Blue Donau River”. The performance passed through the city of Vukovar early in the morning with mobile speakers.
Following this, in honor of all Croatian defenders of Vukovar at the Memorial Cemetery for the Victims of the Great Patriotic War, St. Mass was served in the churches of St. Philip and Jakov.
This year, under the name “Vukovar’s Youth and Joy,” the Flower Promenade returned to our city with the participation of 600 children from Vukovar Kindergarten, playing the Majorette in Vukovar and the Wind Orchestra in Vukovar. ..
