The story of wine is the story of Ilok. It is a wine town, wine is the life of the city.
In the town center, you can go down the road to the left or to the right, both directions are open to you. If you go right, you’ll reach the Lower Town, the part by the Danube bank. There you’ll see the promenade, a beautiful place for rest and relaxation, together with a beautiful view of Medieval center, raised above the Danube, dominant and unwavering in its splendor. You’ll reach it if you go left by the road mentioned earlier. This road leads to the Medieval center. The old fortress with St. John of Capistrano’s church is located in the town center, in the lush green of the parks.
In the middle of the fortress built in the late 14th and early 15th century are the foundations of St. Peter’s parish church, where archaeological research started in 2006, and an archaeological park is to be established here in the near future. The Odescalchi Castle is largely a medieval building, most likely built by it’s most famous ruler Nicholas of Ilok.
