This thesis presents the traditional architecture of Srijem, the region of east Croatia, on the example of villages Bapska, Šarengrad, Mohovo, Tovarnik and the city of Ilok. The traditional features of the architecture of this area are shown through the survey of the development of settlements and of the forms of residential and other buildings. The current situation is presented through a field report and by pointing to changes and deviations from the traditional characteristics that occur due to social and economic changes. The issue of a large number of abandoned houses, the adaptation of traditional architecture to modern standards of living and its transformation into tourism purposes are discussed. The aim of this thesis was to raise awareness of the importance of protecting this part of the cultural heritage and affirming Srijem area as a region in scientific researches.
