Neradin (Serbian Cyrillic: Нерадин) is a village in Serbia. It is situated in the Irig municipality, in the Srem District, Vojvodina province. The village has a Serb ethnic majority[citation needed] with a population of 551 people (2002 census).[citation needed]

Trivia[edit]

Nikola Bizumić, inventor of the manually operated hair clipper, was born in Neradin. A former barber, he had an idea to create a clipper which would shorten the time for haircutting.

He was misunderstood by his countrymen in such places as Irig and Ruma. Disillusioned, he left for the United States, where around 1860 the first hair clipper was born.

Thanks to the invention, Bizumić gained enormous wealth. After his death, that money was left to the six generations of his relatives in Neradin. By fault of the administrative services of Syrmia at the time, they have never received the money.[citation needed]
