Ugrinovci (Serbian Cyrillic: Угриновци) is a suburban settlement of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Zemun.

Location[edit]

Ugrinovci is located in the eastern section of the Syrmia region, in the western part of the municipality of Zemun, near the administrative border of the municipality of Vojvodina. It is located on the Batajnica-Dobanovci road. In the northern direction to Batajnica, which is 8 kilometres (5 miles) away, is the new sub-neighborhood of Busije, while in the northern direction to Dobanovci (4 kilometres (2 miles), over the Belgrade-Zagreb highway) is the also new sub-neighbourhood of Grmovac, both being populated since the mid-1990s with the refugees from Croatia and Bosnia and Hercegovina, which almost doubled the population of Ugrinovci.

Characteristics[edit]

Ugrinovci is statistically classified as a village, since majority of its population is employed in agriculture. Since detachment of the municipality of Surčin from Zemun in 2003, Ugrinovci remained the only separate settlement in the municipality of Zemun, as all the other settlements (Batajnica, Zemun Polje, former city of Zemun, etc.) are part of the Belgrade city proper (uža teritorija grada).

Name of the village comes from the medieval name for Hungarians (Ugri).
