ZAGREB, 15 March (Hina) – The first cruise ship, out of 393В planned for this year’s tourist season, arrived in the eastern Croatian Danube River port of Vukovar on Friday, with 170В guests aboard, mostly from Australia, Canada and the United States.

Cruise ships sailing from Budapest to the Black Sea stop in Vukovar on this route.
