Favorite thing:


The Municipality of Vozdovac covers an area of 14,864 hectares, which is inhabited by a population of around 167,000.

The location of the present-day Municipality of Vozdovac is the place from which the leader-Vozd (Leader) Karadjordje led his rebels and, in 1806, liberated Belgrade from the Turks for the first time. In memory of that event, this area was named Vozdovo (The Leader’s) suburb and, some time later, it was named Vozdovac. After the Second World War, the Municipality was called the 6th urban region, and in 1956, it was created through amalgamation of the then municipalities of Lekino brdo and Vozdovac.


Fondest memory:
The patron day of the Municipality of Vo?dovac is St. Andrew, on December 13.
