Rural tourism is a soul of Vojvodina

People live slowly on Vojvodina Granges – you should try it too!

Residents of the Vojvodina plain living in villages have been the main force of development for centuries. Their mentality, attitude and persistence have been patiently moulding the social scenery of the plain. Multiculturalism in Vojvodina is emphasized today as its major trademark. There is almost no other place in Europe where one could come across so many different cultures and nationalities on a regular tourist journey. This detail gives the main tone of recognition to the Vojvodina flatlands and its villages. This unique heritage can be experienced in one of the ethno-houses, or by spending time in a rural household.

Granges offer a specific experience of traditional lifestyle in the plain. Vojvodina without granges, even if only in stories, would become somewhat impoverished. Granges are source of the local mentality, and at the same time, home of the hardworking, persistent, thrifty, energetic, reserved, restrained and, above all – hospitable people.

There is no other place on this planet that is as widely open as granges are towards heaven. Being both on earth and in heaven granges symbolise open houses of this planet. These lonely houses amidst endless fields of grain preserve rural tradition of Vojvodina and rise to the level of symbols. There are more granges that gain new life embodied in the tourist development. Silence along dusty cart roads, shade in the porches and colourful objects of ethnographic heritage offer new inspirations and motivation. Nicely decorated rooms, some still furnished with Alte Deutsche pieces of furniture, clearly reaffirm the mentality of the generations of local farmers. Families pay visits to granges more often. Children can safely play there and learn about life in the countryside. If you happen to be a gastronome, and are looking for splendid tastes of the local cuisine, then villages are the right place for you. This cuisine was created by diversity of cultures where during one meal can be tasted influences of Hungarian, German, and Slovakian, Šokac or Serbian cooking.

Gastronomy of Vojvodina is a result of complex life conditions, and natural and social characteristics of this area.

Tourist organisation of Vojvodina recommends: “Didin salaš” – Dida’s Grange near Sombor, “Kuća Ačanski” – Ačanski House at Mali Stapar, “Rokin salaš” – Roka’s grange near Lake Ludaš and “Perkov salaš”– Perko’s Grange near Neradi
