Vera (Serbian Cyrillic: Вера[4]) is a village in Croatia, municipality Trpinja, Vukovar-Srijem County.

Name

Villages Trpinja, Bobota and Vera share a common toponymic legend, according to which the ancestors of today's inhabitants, who had settled in the villages during the Great Serb Migrations under Arsenije III Čarnojević, were called Bobe. They were fleeing from the Ottoman Empire conquest to preserve their faith. A local proverb goes "Bobe suffer for faith" (Bobe trpiše za veru); Bobota was named after Bobe, Trpinja after trpiti (sr. "to suffer"), and Vera from vera (sr. "faith").[5]

Branch school of Elementary school Bobota is located in Vera. Education at local schools is implemented in Serbian language.[6] The first school in Vera was opened in 1789.
