Vera (Serbian Cyrillic: Вера[4]) is a village in Croatia, municipality Trpinja, Vukovar-Srijem County.

Name[edit]

Villages Trpinja, Bobota and Vera share a common toponymic legend, according to which the ancestors of today's inhabitants, who had settled in the villages during the Great Serb Migrations under Arsenije III Čarnojević, were called Bobe. They were fleeing from the Ottoman Empire conquest to preserve their faith. A local proverb goes "Bobe suffer for faith" (Bobe trpiše za veru); Bobota was named after Bobe, Trpinja after trpiti (sr. "to suffer"), and Vera from vera (sr. "faith").[5]

Geography[edit]

Area of Vera and neighboring Trpinja and Bobota have the lowest elevation among the villages north of the Vuka River.[6]

History[edit]

Up until the mid-XIX century area of Vera was a part of much large Palača Swamplands.[7] After the completion of Bobota Canal surrounding areas were transformed into agricultural lands.[7]

Education[edit]

Branch school of Elementary school Bobota is located in Vera. Education at local schools is implemented in Serbian language.[8] The first school in Vera was opened in 1789.
