Based on published archival sources and literature, the authors present the most important aspects that influenced on the economic development of the city and the district of Vukovar at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. Vukovar as the center of the then Srijem (Syrmia) county is located on a very favorable traffic position characterized by the navigability of the Danube river. That position was one of the foundations of the economic development of that region, among other factors. Influenced by numerous political, social, natural and geographical elements, the city and district of Vukovar went through a transformation and became one of the most significant economic points of the Eastern Slavonia and Srijem.
