Bukovački Salaši

Bukovački Salaši (Буковачки Салаши), also known as Bukovac (Буковац), is a suburb of Sombor, a city in Serbia.


It is situated between the Veliki Bački Kanal (Great Bačka Canal) in the north, Mostonga river in the east, railway Sombor-Bukovac-Prigrevica in the south, and Centrala, another suburb of Sombor, in the west.

Bukovački Salaši (plural in Serbian) are divided into: Centar Bukovac, Kovačići, Lazići, Zečevi, Janjatovići, Karalići, and Dedići. Each of these parts of the settlement (except Centar Bukovac) is composed of several farms ("salaši" in Serbian), and is named after the first family that built farm in that area.

Centar Bukovac is a central part of the settlement and it is located around the local road that is 3.5 kilometres long.
