SERBIA - Autonomous Province of Vojvodina / Аутономна Покрајина Војводина

Autonomous Province of Vojvodina , is an autonomous province of Serbia, located in the northern part of the country, in the Pannonian PlainNovi Sad is the largest city and administrative center of Vojvodina and the second-largest city in Serbia. Vojvodina has a population of approximately 2 million (approximately 26.88% of the Serbian population excluding Kosovo, and 21.56% including it). It has a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural identity; there are more than 26 ethnic groups in the province, which has six official languages. The term vojvodina in Serbian means a type of duchy – more specifically, a voivodeship. It derives from the word"vojvoda" (See: voivode) which stems from the Proto-Slavic language word "voevoda". Those words are etymologically connected with modern-day words "vojnik" (soldier) and "voditi" (to lead). Its original name (from 1848) was the "Serbian Voivodeship" (Srpska Vojvodina) which then became "Voivodeship of Serbia" ("Vojvodstvo Srbija").

Cover from another Autonomous Region - Vojvodina, a potential country in the future from ex-Yugoslavia. My good friend Emanuel helped me to get the cover from there with perfect postmark. He sent this cover as registered too, You can see the city name called Novi Sad, which is the capital city of Vojvodina. They don't issue own stamps or local issues, using Serbian stamps only.

This is another regular cover from Vojvodina, posted from Novi Sad. You can see the first stamp from right side is related to Novi Sad, the city name is written there. This is the only stamp which is most suitable to make a cover from Vojvodina. Thank You dear Emanuel for the nice cover.

This is also an airmail cover posted from Novisad, unfortunately the postmark is not clear. Thank You Emanuel.
