The third episode from Panonia: "Vojvodina"
[In cirilic alphabet Нови Сад, Ujvidék in hungarian, Neusatz in german, Nový Sad in slovakian]
Let's discover a new part of Panonia, this time in Serbia, our slavic neighbors. Voivodina (Vojvodina in slavic language) is the region that comprises the north part of Serbia, and as well are the serbian Banat plains. The region has its own autonomy in the serbian country. In history, Vojvodina region was mostly part of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, being part of Hungary so many years, like Transilvania was. About 15% of the population are hungarians.
Vojvodina (about 2.000.000 inhabitants) is the richest part of Serbia, cause their lands forms part of the Panonian Plains, which are so fertile.
Mostly of the photos are from the capital of the region, Novi Sad (about 215.000 citizens), that literally means in serbian New Now, but the true meaning is "new planting" (placecement / assetlement). The river that crosses the city is, of course, the Danube, having got the water from the rivers Tisza and Mures (Mures goes to Tisza, Tisza goes to Danube). The city has a brotherhood with Timisoara. Other photos are from Petrovaradin (the village where is located the fortress, part of the city Novi Sad), and the frontier to Romania, near of the Serbian city Vrsac, also in Vojvodina.
