Special Nature Reserve "Deliblatska sands"
Covers 350 square km. Represents the most compact region in Vojvodina. The rich flora presents a large number of rare, especially endemic and relict, prairie and sand species, preserved and complex ecosystem. Due to specific natural and climatic conditions, although it is at the altitude of only 200 m, Deliblato sands has a climate similar to the mountain. Sands reach to the bank of the Danube on the south-east side, where they are protected and covered by two Ada (Žilava and Čibuklija). Deliblatska peščara is poorly populated, with few villages, mostly on the outskirts of the reserve. Among the potential areas and tourist sites, there are identified Atar grove village, with the hunting grounds of this village and Dubovac, as well as peripheral areas drier villages, Zagajica hills and Dumača, as well as some other smaller areas. Some of the tourist area are already partially activated- Devojački bunar and Čardak, located in the border zone of a protected natural good.
Possible types of tourism development in this area are: fishery and hunting, eco tourism, excursion, village, tourist recreation.
ŠG "Banat» manages three hunting grounds of the total area of 46000ha: «Deliblatska peščara», «Donje podunavlje» and Vršac mountaines. Hunting grounds are located in the municipality of Vrsac, Bela Crkva, Kovin and Alibunar and Pančevo. All three hunting significantly differ. By it’s size, beauty, wealth and diversity of flora and fauna, the Deliblato sands is special. This is the hunting ground of the forest, slightly rolling sandy relief, with features of steppe hunting. In its southeastern part, the transition is made into the hunting-ground of water-swamp type. This part is a separate entity, called "swan pane» where the game of water habitats resident, breeds, and, in one period of the year, it is hunted.
Thermomineral water: By hydrogeological research, several sites of geothermal water are discovered. Waters belong to the group of radium water, and can be used for the therapeutic and other tourist purposes.
In the previous development of tourism, this natural resource is not significantly valorized and used, despite the fact that there are assumptions based on which one can think about the formation of health-treatment and health-recreational center.
Natural resources for tourism development on the rivers and lakes
The area of southern Banat, is dominated by the river Danube, Tamiš, Nera, Karas, Brzava and Moravica, large channel DTD in Banatski Palanka and a large number of lakes with the most in the white church. Thirty-third largest river in the world, the Danube, through the South Banat flows in the total length of 80 km, and includes many Ada, low coastal belt Pancevo, Kovin and Bela Crkva, branches and represents a natural connection in this area to Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. This zone as a whole, which is the basis of the Danube, should be in touristic sense considered a unique. However, this river, so far is the untapped tourist potential. In addition to nautical and bath features, his branches and backwaters have predisposition for the development of sports fishing. Adas are suitable for fishing, combined sports and recreational activities on land and water, and coastal areas on the Danube, provide suitable conditions for the survival of many types of game hunting and the development of hunting tourism. There are sites suitable for development of nautical tourism and sports fishing, which woul be, with organization and small investments, payable in the shortest possible time.
Bela Crkva Lakes
With their tourist attractiveness and expressive sports function, there are very distinguished Bela Crkva lakes and Vršac Water Lake. "Pearls of Banat", Water lakes, seven major lakes with crystal clear water, are located in the direct vicinity of the town of Bela Crkva. They are exceptionally rich in fish (Amur, perch, pike, carp, catfish) and are a real challenge for sport fishermen. The main lake is the oldest, and is adjusted to recreational needs. The other six lakes, for the time being, despite the significant tourist potential, which enables the development of recreational tourism in the water, and fishing tourism, are not utilised.
Ecological and tourist values of Vršac mountain
Vršac mountains - geological relic of Pannonia Vale. The highest peak of Vršac mountain reaches 641m above sea level, and is the highest point in Vojvodina. The higher mountain areas are covered by deciduous trees and conifer, which significantly contributes to ecological and recreational space value. On mountain is found over 1000 plant species, and due total ecosystem, floral and landscape values, it is protected as park of nature. Lower parts are dominated by vineyards, with white wine varieties, and the the whole region is one of the most important vineyard regions in Serbia, with numerous wine cellars. At the top of the hill there are remains of the former military-strategic fortress, old town "Tower", built probably in mid XIV century. Of the former fortress, the rest is just a guard tower. In the sky above the hills, there often can be seen the colorful domes of paragliders.
Tourist value of anthropogenic potential
South Banat is not a traditional tourist destination, but tourism development may rely on the very interesting, above mentioned resources. However, we can say that the most competitive resources are made of the specific socio-cultural characteristics, as the Banat area where different nations, religions, culture, religion, life styles coexist for centuries, as well as its outstanding natural potentials, with a good part of the protected natural environment. It should be noted that this region is located on the crossroads of the EU roads, and that, in general, its tourist-geographical position very good. Hospitality of the local population is a force, which the tourism of this region can account.
Regardless of the many weaknesses that are evident, and that slow down the development of tourism in the region (insufficient promotional activities, incomplete image of region and municipalities on the tourist market, lack of product differentiation in relation to the competition, the lack of plans for tourism development, accommodation capacity, lack of tourist signaling, underinclusion of complementary economies in the development of tourism), this region see the perspective in the development of tourism. In this sense, the Spatial Plan Deliblatska sandstone was made, which will largely define the directions of development of tourism, as well as other branches of economy of the municipalities whose territory includes the regulation. In creating the strategy of development of municipalities and regions, within which the special attention given the possibilities of tourism development. These strategies are related to areas of existing attractions, as well as the areas that have yet to be activated.
