The Vršac Mountains (Serbian: Вршачке планине, Romanian: Munții Vârșeț), also known as Vršac Hill (Serbian: Vršački breg, Вршачки брег Romanian Dealurile Vârșețului), are mountains located near Vršac (Romanian: Vârșeț), in the Banat, Serbia and partially also in Romania. They represent an independent and distinct massif, 19 kilometers long and spreading on an area of 170 square kilometers, of which 122 belong to Serbia and 48 to Romania. The Vršac mountains have a shape of an arch, where the basic mountain mass takes the central position, while the hills extend to the south and north.

Peaks

In respect to the appearance of the Vršac mountains, four distinct shapes are clearly visible:

  • The Tower of Vršac (Vršačka kula) - 399m
  • The Fox Head (Lisičija glava) - with its three peaks:
    • The Vršac Peak (Vršački vrh) - 590m
    • The Gudurica peak (Gudurički vrh), which is at the same time the highest peak in Vojvodina, with its 641m above the sea level
    • Lower Vršišor (Donji Vršišor) - 463m

Between them there are vast rifts. Turska glava (402m), Đakov vrh (449m), and Kamenarica are also interesting places for climbers.

Fauna

Owing to the exceptional natural conditions, the Vršac mountains with 120 registered species of birds are one of the richest ornithological habitats in Vojvodina and the whole Serbia. It is necessary to mention some other representatives of the fauna, like grey and red fox, deer, wild boars and wolves that appear from time to time.

Culture

The most important cultural monuments include The Tower of Vršac from the 15th century and Mesić monastery, which according to the documents from 18th century was built in the 15th century, while tradition claim that it was erected in 1225.
