Eleven microsites have been designated for the construction of marinas in Vojvodina.
The marinas will be built on the rivers Danube, Tisza, Tamis, and Begej, as well as on the Danube-Tisza-Danube (DTD) Canal.
According to a study conducted by the Spatial Planning Institute of Vojvodina and the Belgrade-based company Ehting, in cooperation with the Provincial Secretariat for Economy and Tourism, in addition to the Begej River, the construction of marinas is planned on another 10 locations on the Danube, the Tisza, the Sava and the Tamis.
The director of the Spatial Planning Institute of Vojvodina, Predrag Knezevic, said on RTV that the study envisaged five marinas on the Danube, two on the Tisza and one each on the DTD Canal, the Sava and the Tamis. The marinas are meant for vessels of 6.5 to 12 metres in length.

“On the Danube, the marinas will be built in Backo Novo Selo, Sremski Karlovci, Stari Banovci, Kovin and Stara Palanka. On the Tisza, they will be built in Senta and Titel, on the Sava, it’s Sremska Mitrovica, and on the Begej, it’s Zrenjanin. When it comes to the Tamis, the marina will be located in Pancevo. As for the DTD system, the marina will be located in Srbobran”, Knezevic says.
The completion of these works depends on the state of the given micro-location. The optimal deadline is 4 to 5 months from drafting the relevant documentation and obtaining a building permit.
As for the marina on the Begej, the project also entails the construction of a terminal in the centre of Zrenjanin, the reconstruction of 4 navigation locks, 2 in Zrenjanin, 2 in Timisoara. The project could be completed by August 2021, making the Begej River navigable again – Deputy Mayor of Zrenjanin Dusko Radisic said on RTV.
The project also entails the construction of a cycling lane on the outer rim of the canal, from the terminal in Zrenjanin to the Romanian border. This could bring new tourists to Zrenjanin, as a new waterway between the two neighbouring states would open.
The works on the cleaning of the Begej River will commence in spring.
