From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Districts (Serbian: Окрузи, Okruzi ) are the administrative units of Serbia, comprising several municipalities each. They are defined by the Government of Serbia Enactment of 29 January 1992



The slavic word okrug (округ) denotes administrative subdivision in some states. Its etymology is similar to the German Kreis, circle (in the meaning of administrative division) (although translated in German as Bezirk): okrug is literally something "encircling". In the subdivisions of Serbia, the term is translated as district, sometimes as county.


Districts and municipalities of Serbia

The territorial order of the Republic of Serbia is regulated by the Law on Territorial Organization, adopted in the National Assembly on 29 December 2007.[1] According to the law, "Territorial organization of the Republic comprises municipalities and cities are the territorial units where the local autonomy is exercised, city of Belgrade as a separate territorial unit, and autonomous provinces as a form of territorial autonomy".

By its Enactment of 29 January 1992, the Government of Serbia defined the districts as "regional centers of state authority", enacting affairs run by the relevant Ministries. Additionally, since the adoption of UNSCR 1244 in 1999 the southern Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija is placed under administration of UN authorities as Kosovo (UNMIK) that made a reform to its subdivisions. Currently the Republic of Serbia is divided into 29 districts (in Central Serbia, Vojvodina and Kosovo) + district city of Belgrade.[2]
