    Vodice

    by viddra Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some 3km west of Kikinda is this holy place with a small chapel, a shelter and a keeper's house.
    Right in front of the house is a lovely garden with some swings, see-saws, benches and big reels turned into tables, where you can have a picnic.

    You can get there by following the Kikinda-Idjoš road. As soon as you cross the bridge over the DTD canal, turn left and go straight, past cottages and fields, until you come to the cross with the 'Vodice' plaque.

    Gusle

    Gusle is the Academic Society for Cherishing Music founded in 1876 that's been active ever since. There are more than 550 members ( mostly children and pupils ) in it and it would be really nice for you to see them dance our national dances like professionals.

    The main photo's showing my niece Ivana ( 2nd on the left ) and her schoolfriends, who are all the members of Gusle.

    Manastir Svete Trojice

    by viddra Updated Jul 17, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Manastir Svete Trojice ( Holy Trinity Convent ) was built in 1885-87 as a foundation of Melanija Nikolić-Gajčić. It used to be a monastery ( until 1955 ), but now it's a convent now.
    The iconostasis and wall paintings were done by Ðorđe Pečić.
    The picture's showing the entrance with the mosaics of Archangels Michael and Gabriel.
    Directions:
    The convent's 1km from the centre of town. Walk down Ive Lole Ribara Street and at Sinđeliceva Street turn right. The convent's a couple of steps on the left, across the street.

    The chapel's just 3.5m long, 2.2m wide and 2.6m high, with a small tower and a bell.
    Inside the chapel, there are icons, plaques that tell who and when built it, and a pump.

    Liturgy's performed here on 30 July.

    The 1st thing you'll see when you get to Vodice is this carthen house. It was built for the keeper of the chapel who looks after the grounds.
    There aren't many like this in Kikinda today, so it's a kind of monument itself.

    Crkva Na Vodici 1

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The chapel, dedicated to Great Martyr Marina, better known as Fiery Mary (Ognjena Marija), was built in 1865 on the place called Valov (trough). The water that drains away from here is believed to have healing power.

    In 1895, on the north side of the chapel, people built a shelter for the ill and distressed which still exists. It's 5m long, 3m wide and 2m high.

    The picture's showing the sign on the place where a cafe called Kod zlatnog pluga ( At Golden Plough ) once was, that is the place where the 1st play in Serbian, Svetislav and Mileva by Jovan Sterija Popovic, was performed in 1834.

    The picture's showing an unusual courtyard for Kikinda, and I think that that's what makes it interesting.
