Vrsac wine festival

We visited Vrsac with our friends Zlata and Sasa in September 2013 to see the
wine fair. Vrsac is a small city in northeast Vojvodina, near the border to Rumania.

The central streets were closed to traffic. The market stalls were similar to those found at many festivals in Serbia.

All wine was locally produced. Many stalls had the same wine from the one large producer in Vrsac.
