Bor (Serbian Cyrillic: Бор) is a town, municipality and the administrative center of the Bor District in eastern Serbia. It has one of the largest European copper mines - RTB Bor. It has been a mining center since 1904, when a French company began operations there.[3] It is the administrative center of the Bor District of Serbia. The population of the town is 34,160, while municipality has 48,615.

Name[edit]

The name is derived from the Serbian word Bor (Бор), meaning "pine".[citation needed]

Geography[edit]

Bor is surrounded by many beautiful places such as Banjsko Polje, the spa-town Brestovačka Banja, the lake Borsko Jezero, and the mountain Stol, and it is very close to the mountain Crni Vrh.

History[edit]

Neolithic Bubanj-Salkuca culture ceramics and anthropomorphic-zoomorphic figurines were found in Krivelj.[4]

In 1903 the mine of Bor was opened which was important moment for the development of Bor. The poet Miklós Radnóti wrote here some of the most beautiful poems ever written in Hungarian during his forced labour (1944) in the copper mines.[5]

During World War II, the copper mines were under German rule, and an internment and labor camp was established at the site. During the period, roughly 6,000 people were imprisoned at the camp and worked at the copper mines. The prisoners were mostly of Jewish descent, as well as Sabbatarians and Jehovah's Witnesses. Later on, shortly before World War II ended, the mines were evacuated, with most of the prisoners executed.[6]

In 1947 Bor officially had a town status - at the time its population was 11,000.

Settlements[edit]

Aside from the town of Bor, the municipality includes the following settlements:[7]

According to the 2011 census, the population of the Bor municipality numbered 48,615 residents, while the city had 34,160 residents. The number of residents has dropped over the years since air pollution by RTB Bor has caused many people to leave the town.[citation needed]
