The territory of the Novi Kneževac municipality, with Banatsko Aranđelovo, Krstur, Đala, Majdan – Rabe and Podlokani Firić villages, borders with Hungary and Romania in the north.
According to the historical sources this place was called Turkish Kanjiža. The greater economic significance Novi Kneževac gained in 18th century during the “military border” period. A monument to soldiers killed in the Second World War (Aleksandar Zarin’s work), in the park on the bank of the river Tisa, is a constant reminder of the fight the people of Novi Kneževac put up against Nazism.
Novi Kneževac has attractive surroundings. There is the river Tisa, fish ponds and various places to visit. If we are talking about agriculture, we must not forget to mention the famous paprika which is grown and processed in this area. Novi Kneževac is well connected by road with Kanjiža and further to the north by the bridge on the river Tisa.
