Ilok is the easternmost town in Croatia. Few expect such a luxurious place at the most remote point and remain enchanted by the fascinating remains of the golden history of Ilok. Nikola of Ilok ruled medieval Ilok in the 15th century. He was the king of Bosnia, a Croatian-Hungarian nobleman, and the duke of Transylvania at the same time. The man of influence, that Nikola, very wealthy for the times, had the magnificent Ilok fortress built, the largest one on the territory of continental Croatia. 14 towers on 1350-meter long walls, 5 churches, a monastery, and a two-story castle in it. The remains of that building, with architecture from the time of the Turks, are embedded in the green landscapes of lush and fertile Ilok today.

Then the development of viticulture and winemaking began, thus today almost every street in Ilok hides at least one of the famous wine cellars. Wine tasting is not the only entertainment here. Selected drops are accompanied by great traditional dishes. Nature walks, cycling, horse riding, fishing, driving on the Danube, in short charging the batteries in different ways. The hospitality of 27 thousand inhabitants can be found in private apartments and holiday houses in Ilok, they are great and unforgettable hosts. Ilok is not the most remote point, but the place where Croatia begins.
