A salaš near Čenej, northern Serbia

Salaš (in Serbo-Croatian, Czech and Slovak, from Hungarian szállás "house, accommodation"[1]) is a traditional type of farm in the Pannonian Plain region, particularly in Bačka and Slavonija. A salaš is typically remote from a town or village. It consists of a family house, agricultural objects such as barn, stable and granary, surrounded by arable land and pastures.[2] They were owned and inhabited by single family, who lived there for generations.

In Slovak, salaši were remote encampments for sheep-guards, and eventually came to denote small countryside restaurants housed in such houses, providing sheep products and traditional home meals such as bryndzové halušky. [3]
