Vrsac Tower

Symbol of the City

It is one of the largest historical monuments in the entire region. The tower is a symbol of the city, situated on a hill and visible from afar.
A common belief among the people is that this castle was built in 1439 by Despot Đurađ Branković in order to protect his estates in Vojvodina from the Turks after the fall of Smederevo.

Vrsac mountains

Healthy air, nature oasis

The air of Vršac is therapeutic due to the prevailing winds. Additionally, the winds make the warmest part of the year in Vršac pleasant.
Vršački Breg (Vršac Hill) is a favorite destination for both locals and tourists.

The dominant feature of Vršac's landscape is Vršački Breg, the main tourist destination of the city. Since 1982, a significant portion of the forested area of this mountain has been protected as a Nature Park, thanks to its diverse flora and vegetation, rich forest ecosystems, beautiful landscapes, and viewpoints.

Vršac vineyards

Salvation lies in wine

The Vršac region is well-known for its long tradition of winemaking. Vršac Vineyards belong to the older wine-producing areas of Europe. According to historical records and archaeological findings, the origins of viticulture date back to the time of the Dacians and Roman rule.

The people of Vršac take pride in their vineyards and wines.

An interesting story is that already in the mid-15th century, this area became widely known for its wines. It is believed that the wines of this region were among the most sought after at the Hungarian court. Some historians mention that in 1494, a barrel of Vršac wine was worth 10.50 ducats at the Hungarian King Vladislav's court.
