Vrbovski (Serbian Cyrillic: Врбовски) is a suburban settlement of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in the Belgrade's municipality of Palilula.

Location[edit]

Vrbovski, the sub-settlement of Padinska Skela, is located in the northern, Banat section of the municipality (Pančevački Rit), 33 kilometers north of downtown Belgrade. The settlement is located on the Kišvara canal, 8 kilometers west of the settlement of Besni Fok and the Zrenjaninski put road which connects Belgrade with the town of Zrenjanin, in Vojvodina, and 3 kilometers away from the left bank of the Danube.

History[edit]

The settlement was established after World War II as a part of the massive melioration in Pančevački Rit. It was named after Viktor Verbovsky,[1] the commander of the company of Russian soldiers which defended the area in the beginning of the World War II and all of them were killed by the Nazi forces.
