Vinkovci is located in the northernmost meander of Bosut, whose left bank, positioned about 88 metres above sea-level, was protected from frequent floods and suitable for colonization. Owing to its favourable position, Vinkovci was an area upon which the cultures used to inherit one another from early Stone Age to modern times. Not the same sites were always inhabited, but looking at the current layout of the City, Vinkovci has been continually inhabited for over 8,000 years. Most of the prehistoric settlements were situated on that high left bank, and the largest and longest lasting settlement was formed on the right confluence of the Ervenica brook into Bosut, on "Telo Tržnica".
The first communities of farmers settled this area around the year 6200 B.C., introducing pottery, domesticated animals and plants.
