Biography

Brief history

Otok is a very young and small city with wonderful nature and great potential.  

Otok is a town located in eastern Croatia, 20 km south of Vinkovci, in eastern Slovonia. The population is 6,343 (2011), with 4,694 residents in the town of Otok and 1,649 in the nearby village of Komletinci. 

Otok is the center of a large agricultural region. One of the important factors in the general economic development of the city, including tourism, is its geographic and traffic position in proximity to the towns of Vinkovci, Vukovar and Županja. Existing and planned road communication allows direct exit to the main road Vinkovci-Županja or the Zagreb-Lipovac-Belgrade motorway and the connection with the countries of Southeast Europe. Of special significance will be the planned construction of the Šokačka magistrale, which will connect the port to the Sava River with a port on the Danube River in Vukovar.
