Mužlja (Serbian Cyrillic: Мужља) is a neighborhood of the Zrenjanin city in Serbia. Formerly, it was a separate village that was joined with Zrenjanin in 1981.

Name[edit]

In Serbian the neighborhood is known as Mužlja or Мужља, in Hungarian as Muzslya or Torontálmuzslya, and in German as Muschla.

Ethnic groups[edit]

In the 1971 census, the last census before settlement was united with Zrenjanin, Mužlja had a Hungarian ethnic majority. Today, settlement is populated by both, Serbs and Hungarians, but there is no available recent statistical data that shows which of the two groups forms ethnic majority in Mužlja (population of the neighborhood is listed together with population of entire Zrenjanin in recent statistical publications).
