90 percent of Vukovar, Croatian city situated just on the Danube border with Vojvodina, was ruthless
destroyed in 1991 by Yugoslav (Serbo-Montenegrin) nationalists, territory abductors, murderers and thieves.
At the time of capture of the city, the strength of the attacking Yugoslav Army and its paramilitary units was
about 80,000 troops, versus a maximum of 6,700 Croatian defenders with hardly conceivable relationship
between the quantity and strength of arms on two opposing sides. But it was a Pyrrhic victory of Yugoslavia:
obtained battle, and lost war in Croatia.
This 50 meters high water tower, with capacity of 2200 cubic meters, was built in the late sixties in the so-called Najpar bašća Park,
at the city's entrance Mitnica. It was a favorite target of the aggressor's artillery, although it was not a stronghold of defense.
Before the war there was a restaurant on the building's top, with a panoramic view point on whole Vukovar, the Danube River banks
and surrounding Vučedol vineyards. Now it is a monument to the Croatian and Vukovar freedom and independence, but also
a monument to the Serbian-Montenegrin genocide, ethnocide and urbocid from the War for Greater Serbia, 1990-1995.
