Hotel Srbija in Vrsac

Who follows my blog knows already that I love big hotel projects built during the time of Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. And now I discovered one more jewel to share in this space: the Hotel Srbija in Vrsac.

Vrsac is anyway an interesting city that is worth a visit because of its picturesque old town, the beautiful view from the Vrsac tower and the splendid vineyards in the surrounding.
And in the center of the city stands this huge building made in concrete!

The generous main entrance (picture from the hotel's website)

Usually when I visited hotels like that they were really run down or even closed.War, NATO-bombings and a difficult economic situation made it impossible for some region to keep big hotels open and to suitably renovate them. here in Vrsac it's a little different: the city makes a big effort to keep it a tourist destination, in the "millenium center" big sport events take place (like Eurobasket i 2005) and the strong vine industry brings anyway some prosperity to the city.
So the Hotel Srbija keeps up with comfortable 85 rooms and 6 suites, conference rooms and representative halls.

I like how in buildings like that, concrete is used in a rather sculptural way, the building looks like an insect, a well designed composition.
