the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle was damaged by an earthquake in 2001, there was a significant political movement to not replace it, including large majorities voting against both replacement options, but the Washington State Department of Transportation voted to allocate funding to build a tunnel to replace the viaduct. A large number of citizens, including mayoral candidate Mike McGinn, have vowed to stop this tunnel. Usage For removable forms, once the concrete has been


Vukovar

mixed population of different ethnicities, including large numbers of ethnic Croats and Serbs. As a result it suffered greatly during the war between the Croats and the Serb-dominated Yugoslav National Army in the early 1990s. The three-month siege of the city in 1991 and the subsequent occupation by Serbia destroyed or damaged much of the city's infrastructure and resulted in a massacre of Croatian population. As a result, it is difficult to find employment, and much of the population has left; around 30,000 still remain. Those who remain in the city live together nonviolently, although there is still animosity between ethnic groups. Today, it`s a living war and massacre monument. Get in Consider traveling to Osijek by train or air, then proceeding to Vukovar (an hour's drive). '''By bus''': The city has direct bus connections with Osijek (approximately every hour), Zagreb (numerous times a day), Ilok and Vinkovci, and daily to Sombor and Novi Sad in Vojvodina (Serbia). There are also seasonal buses to the Dalmatian coast and cities in Germany. '''By train''': Infrequent trains operate to Vukovar from Osijek and Vinkovci. The station, Borovo-naselje, is around 3 miles north from the main area of Vukovar. There is a daily direct train to Zagreb at 3PM from Zagreb Central Station and returns 6AM from Vukovar. '''By bicycle''': Vukovar lies on the EuroVelo VI route between Osijek and Ilok. '''By car''': Highways lead to Vukovar from all directions. Get around The town is best explored on foot. All the main areas of interest are within a short walk of each other. See The war damage is still very obvious throughout most of the city. '''Hospital''': The hospital in Vukovar is the same one used during the siege of the city. Make sure to act politely and respectfully because after the "Fall of Vukovar", the Serbian army dragged all wounded people (including children) and massacred them at the "Ovčara" site, making this building a living UN critic as UN forces located outside the hospital did nothing to prevent it. The above-ground portion of the hospital has been restored into a typical modern facility, but the basement area (which was the only part of the hospital used during the siege due to the continuous shelling of the above-ground parts of the hospital) has been made into a museum. The museum is very well-designed and gives a chilling feel of what the hospital was like during the siege. While you're in the hospital, if you're lucky you may see Dr. Vesna Bosanac, who was the hospital director during the war and still works there and is regarded as something of a national hero in Croatia because she saved many lives. '''Tank Graveyard Street''': A location of one of a greatest battles in Europe. In the time of a siege Serbian army, equipped with 110 tanks tried a breakthrough with tanks against a lightly armed Croatians led by national hero Blago Zadro, but it resulted in a greatest tank destruction site ever, with tanks mostly being destroyed on many unconventional ways . Today, although rebuilt it still gives an unexplaineable chilling feel of a battle, and one tank is left as a memorial. '''Museum''': The museum in Vukovar placed in the baroque Eltz castle, is horribly damaged from the war, but it is still in use, and there are plans to reconstruct the museum in 2009. Aside from the war damage, the museum has various exhibits to see. Many of the pieces are archaeological artifacts, including a right-footed ceramic shoe from several thousand years ago (Vučedol culture) that the museum staff seem to be particularly proud of. The museum also periodically exhibits paintings from the Bauer collection which is considered one of the more significant collections of Croatian modern art. '''Ovčara massacre site''': The Ovčara field is a short drive from the main area of Vukovar. After the fall of the city to the Serb-dominated Yugoslav National Army, the Serb soldiers gathered 200 of the hospital's doctors and injured patients and massacred them in the Ovčara field. Today at the massacre site there is a memorial and a nearby museum. '''Cemetery''': The cemetery has the graves of many who died during and after the siege. At the center of the cemetery is a memorial statue. The statue has a symbolic flame at its center, and the stones present the image of the Christian cross facing outward in all directions. While walking among the graves, there are several interesting things to consider: Graves labeled 'Hravtski Branitelj' are the graves of untrained volunteers who helped defend the city. People who died after November 18 were usually tortured to death. There are also many graves where you can see that an entire family died on the same day.
