In the wine-grower's hand
Streched out from the clouds
A golden bunch of grapes

In one grain there's a tower of maize
In the second, a magic hill
In the third, a mother's plain

In other grains
The streets fallen asleep, at noon
And the last unpressed bag-pipes
Bigger than the Town Hall

And some highly-educated bell-towers
And wheat courts and the schools of silence
And the workshops of bee-people

The wine-grower's hand helps
Grapes to ripe
And protects them from the thieves of gold

Vasko Popa

Vršac is a lovely town situated on the edge of the Pannonian plain, at the foot of the mountain with the same name.

It's one of the oldest cultural and industrial centres of Vojvodina, and the home of great artist Paja Jovanovic (1859-1957), dramatist Jovan Sterija Popovic (1806-1856) and poet Vasko Popa (1922-1991), just to mention a few.

Vršac is also very famous for its vineyards and wine. In fact, vine can be seen on the town's coat-of-arms and on the facades of the houses.
