Vršac

Short info - Vršac

Vršac belongs to the South Banat District, within the autonomous province Vojvodina. It is situated at the foot of the Vršac Mountains, covering an area of 170 sq km. A part of the mountain range is the highest peak in Vojvodina, Gudurički vrh (641 m). The city is 94 above sea level and covers an area of 10 sq km. In the vicinity of Vršac is the Deliblato Sand (Deliblatska Peščara), one of the biggest sand areas in Europe. Vršac does not lie on any river – the only river is Karaš, which passes near Vršac. Vršac is a municipality with 23 villages. The neighbouring municipalities are Bela Crkva, Kovin, Alibunar and Plandište.

 

 

Vršac has around 37,000 inhabitants. The Vršac hill was inhabited even in the Prehistoric Period. There is also a medieval fortress with 31 m high and 2.5 m wide walls. Serbs came to this area in 1425. Even when it was conquered by the Turks, it was mainly inhabited by Serbs. But after the Banat uprising, Serbs fled to Erdely (Transylvania) and Vršac became a Turkish town. The city was liberated from Turks in 1716 and soon after that the Germans came. In this period, Vršac experienced rapid economic growth and in 1817 it gained the status of a free royal town. During World War II, the Germans living in Vršac levelled the entire Jewish community. After 1944, the Germans were expelled by the Red Army and they immigrated into Germany and Austria.

 

 

The area of Vršac has always been known for its excellent wines. During the Habsburg Monarchy it was the centre of wine industry. Even today, it is well known because of the tradition of wine production and it is a thriving, modern city with a tendency to further economic and cultural development.

 

Vršac has many green areas and fresh air, which are jokingly often connected with the success of sportsmen and sport clubs from Vršac. The cultural growth from the 19th century till today gave the town many great artists and writers, among others, the painters Paja Jovanović and Nikola Nešković, playwright Jovan Popović and poet Vasko Popa. Even today, numerous events take place in Vršac, continuing a rich tradition. The most popular are “Golden autumns” and “Youth Biennale”.
