Serbian City/Town/Village Names Translated into English

29 Jan


Serbia has a lot of unique city/town/village names. A friend of mine from Republika Srpska, Hristof Romanic, decided to throw together some translations for some of them.


Can you guess the names without cheating?

Srpska Crnja
Bačka Palanka
Novi Sad
Crna bara
Velike Pčelice
Krivi Vir
Mokra Gora
Ribarska Banja
Novi Pazar
Gornje Žabsko
Baba boks

    Take it easy everyone.. geez. It’s not meant to be taken too seriously, clearly it’s not a true translation just a lighthearted funny one..

    Thanks for sharing Charles!

      Thanks for understanding, Anna. Exactly…. My friend is a Serb who found some translations that he thought would make people smile.

    I think this is where the New Now comes from.

    Novi can also be translated to New USA since the translation for United States of America is Sjedinjene Američke Države
