Zrenjanin is referred to as the city of sports because some of the greatest athletes and Olympic, European and World champions, who have earned the gratitude of the city for their fascinating success, were born in Zrenjanin and still live here. Some of them are brothers Grbic, Dejan Bodiroga and Ivan Lendjer.
The current world champion in long jumping, Ivana Spanovic, volleyball players Maja Ognjenovic, Jovana Brakocevic, and many more women athletes who were born and live in Zrenjanin left a great mark in Serbian sport.
The river Begej runs through the very heart of the city and not less than eight remarkable bridges that cross it, are its finest ornaments. There used to be two more bridges, one of which, the most famous Eiffel bridge was built in 1904, but was then dissembled and cut to pieces in 1969. And the second one used to connect the center of the city and a settlement Mala Amerika, but when the path of the river Begej was changed to create 3 artificial city lakes, the bridge lost its purpose and is now called Most na suvom (The dry bridge).
You can get away from a city bustle to the lungs of the city, a few beautiful parks, Karadjordje’s park, Park poljubaca (the Park of Kisses), Plankova bašta (Planco‘s garden) and Seceranski park (Sugar factory park).
