Backi Breg

The village is situated on the intersection of Croatia, Hungary and Serbia. Near Backi Breg is the border crossing with neighboring Hungary. It is situated at the end of the international way through our country. Besides the river Plazovic, there are many swamp areas in the village, the most important being: Zmijiste and Gornja Pasarina. The old village was always located on the Danube road connecting the southern areas and the middle Danube. Actually the word Bereg, of Old Slavic origin, means "a river bank". The first mention of settlement dates back to 1319. Backi Breg, due to the proximity of the border crossing, is getting more and more features of a transit-trade village. The village has the shape of an isosceles triangle. This feature is also expressed in the types of houses. They differ from the usual form of the Pannonian house with their facade, interior and layout of rooms. These are recognizable houses of Sokac type. Today, Backi Breg has 1388 inhabitants.
