The Batina Battle Monument
The calm village of Batina on the border of Baranja (Croatia) and Vojvodia (Serbia and Montenegro), having the Danube as a natural border has only one real monument to see: the one on top of the Bansko Brdo elevation.
The 29 m high statue is commemorating the Battle of Batina, and was made by A. Augustincic in the spirit of socialist realism.
The elevation offers an amazing view of the village of Batina, the Danube, the region of Backa, southern bordering area of Hungary and the region of Baranja in Croatia.
View from the top of Bansko Brdo elevation.
This is the view what the Bransko Brdo elevation gives you during a summer sunset. What you can see is some wooden part of Baranja (Croatia) and Baranya county (Hungary).
The Batina Battle Monument - soldier
On every "soc-real" monument commemorating a war or a battle you will see a soldier like this one...coat, hat and the same gun :/
View from the side of the hill
Going up to the elevation to visit the monument it's worth to turn back and see the view of the village with the chapel and the new Bridge.
Baroque chapel and cellars
On the main street, under the chapel there are wine cellars. Since the main activity of the people living here is farming, this is no surprise :)
The small Baroque chapel was built near the banks of the Danube in 1756, featuring the statue of the patron saint John Nepomuk.
