Ilok Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 70 photos

Ilok is the easternmost town and municipality in Croatia. Located in the Syrmia region, it lies on a hill overlooking the Danube river, which forms the border with the Vojvodina region of Serbia. The population of the town of Ilok is 5,897, while the total municipality population is 8,351 (census 2001). The town is home to a Franciscan monastery and Ilok Castle, which is a popular day trip for domestic tourists.

The important cultural and historical heritage with Gothic churches being the most distinguished objects representing the borderline between the western and eastern art, as well as the relicts of Islamic architecture make Ilok a very interesting town of this part of Croatia.
Ilok is also the centre of the rich wine-growing region. The grape harvest of Ilok represents a traditional annual event in the town (end of September, beginning of October). The Ilok wines (Traminer, Burgundy, Grasevina) as well as the excellent Ilok cuisine are famous beyond the Croatian borders.
