Favorite thing:


The Municipality of Vracar covers an area of 292 hectares, which is inhabited by a population of 69,680.

There are several legends about the origin of the name of Vracar. The oldest one dates back to 1521, when this area was named after a gallant man - infidel whose name was Vracar, who had a hut at that place. According to another, the name originates from ? ?vrapcija? (sparrow) fields, because many of those birds populated the territory of the present-day Vracar. Upon abolishment of the urban regions in 1952, two municipalities were created: Eastern Vracar and Neimar. In 1960, the territory of the present-day municipality was established, which covers the parts of the former municipalities of Eastern Vracar, Neimar, and Terazije.


Fondest memory:
The patron day of the Municipality of Vracar is Saint Sava, on January 25.
