At the exit of Melenci, towards Kikinda, you'll find 1 of the last preserved windmills in these parts. As you can see in the picture, it's not in a good shape.
The windmill was built in 1891. It had 3 pairs of milling stones and all sorts of grains were milled there.
The castle with its beautiful surroundings was used by count Lazar Lukac and his family from 1820 to 1893. During that time a lot of aristocrats used to visit the area. Prince Rudolph, the son of Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph, and Archduke Franz Ferdinand were among them.
But then, the castle was turned into a hotel and a restaurant, which made it possible for anyone to step back into the past and spend some time in this lovely place.
Some 9km south of Zrenjanin, there's this village of Echka, once a property of count Lazar Lukach and his family.
Here you can stay at Kaštel Echka, once a castle, now a hotel with a restaurant, take a walk round its pleasant surroundings, visit two churches, Serbian from 1711 and Romanian from 1854...
This is also the place where an Art Colony is organized every odd year.

Zrenjanin has several old cemteries for people of different religions, two are Ortodox (Temisvarko and Tomasevacko), two are for Catholics (Roman-catholic and Muzlja), one for Jews and Protestants (Evangelic and Calvinist) and one old Jewish that is no more in function.
