Short info - Šid

Šid is a town and a municipality in Srem District, on the slopes of the mountain Fruška Gora. It is a region rich in orchards and vineyards, with a big wine cellar. Šid has a surface of 687 km2 and a population of more than 16,000.

 

In 1918 Šid joined the Kingdom of Serbs Croats and Slovenes, and between 1939 and 1941, in the time of WWII, it belonged to Banovina of Croatia.
The origin of the name is unclear. Some believe that it comes from the word Sita (dense thickets), and the settlement built around it was called Sit, and later Šid.
