Borovo Naselje sprung up around the Borovo rubber products factory, built and owned by Tomáš Baťa before World War II. The entire town was built around the factory to provide housing and other necessary institutions for the employees. The town grew and finally merged with the neighboring town of Vukovar. After Borovo Naselje merged with Vukovar, it shed its name and became a part of Vukovar, but it's still known as Borovo Naselje among the locals.
