Grabovo is a place south of Vukovar, Croatia. It consists of two hamlets, Ovčara and Jakobovac, in the north, which are administratively part of the city of Vukovar, and have a total population of 47,[1][2] and an uninhabited section in the south which is administratively under the municipality of Tompojevci.[3][4]

Ovčara is best known for the Ovčara camp and the Ovčara massacre of 1991.

Ovčara and Jakobovac each used to be registered as a standalone settlement, but were joined under the name Grabovo in 1991, and subsequently administratively split in 2001.[5]
