HistoryEdit

Štrand was built back in 1911, as a beach for local people; later it was expanded several times.[1] Its name derives from the German word Strand, meaning simply beach (In German, an initial s is usually pronounced as sh when it comes before a consonant, as in the Yiddish-English shtick, thus, the Serbian š correctly bears a diacritic reflecting this).

During the summer, Štrand has around 20,000 visitors daily.[1]
