Vrbas

Short info - Vrbas

Vrbas is a town and municipality in the South Banat District. It has 26,000 inhabitants and covers an area of 107 sq km. The whole municipality has a surface of 376 sq km and lies 78 m above sea level.
 

The first mention of Vrbas dates back to 1387, but some think that the city has been existing much longer, namely since 1213. Archaeological information suggests that settlements have existed here for more than 3,000 years. Many tribes and cultures passed through this region: The Celts, Yazidi, Romans, Slavs, Avars, Germans, Huns and Turks. Ethnic changes happened after the colonisation of the Ruthenians, Hungarians and Germans in 1720. After the Germans came, the economic structure changed, because farmers and ranchers were replaced by artisans.
 

Vrbas was liberated from fascism on October 20, 1944. After that, the area was settled by people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Kosovo.
