Petrovčić

Petrovčić (Serbian Cyrillic: Петровчић) is a suburban settlement of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Surčin.

Location

Petrovčić is the westernmost settlement in the municipality, located right next to the administrative border which divides Central Serbia and the province of Vojvodina. It is located in the Syrmia region (north of the "Bojčinska" woods), west of the village of Bečmen, almost 30 kilometers west of downtown Belgrade and 12 kilometers west of its municipal seat, Surčin.

The road which connects Petrovčić to Surčin (through Bečmen) on the east, continues into the Vojvodina on the west, to the village of Karlovčić. A crossroad of this road and the one opposite to it (north to south, Deč-Ašanja) is just west of Petrovčić.

Population

Like majority of the settlements in the municipality, Petrovčić experienced high population growth in recent decades, almost 26% between the censuses of 1991 (1,117 inhabitanst) and 2002 (1,406). The settlement is statistically classified as a rural one (village). Major ethnic groups are the Serbs (1,261 or 89,69%), Roma (73 or 5,19%), Montenegrins and Gorani (17 each or 1,21%).
