The second most populated town (160 000). Subotica has been a historical crossroads and a high tourist place at the same time. Peopled by Serbs, Hungarians, Jews and many minorities like Bunjevci or Slovaks, Subotica has been a true multi-confessional and multiethnic town. Situated a few kilometres away from the border to Hungary on the great road connecting Europe and the East, this town became rather of the world, a kind of Pannonian St. Moritz. At the end of XIX century when the town had completely been transformed, there began coming the Viennians and Hungarians from Budapest attracted by the shadowed parks, the charming hotels and the lakes in summer. Today Subotica has been in the heart of a region offering numerous tourist attractions.
