Međa is one of the oldest places in the Banat . It was first mentioned as a monastery in the Kingdom of Hungary in 1247 under the name Párdány or Pardanj. During the Ottoman rule , the place is mainly inhabited by Serbs, who were followed by Germans and Magyars in the second half of the 18th century . The place was separated into a Serbian and a German-Hungarian part until 1907.

After the First World War , Pardanj was awarded to Romania by the Peace Treaty of Versailles and in 1924 it was incorporated into the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes . The name of the city was changed to Ninčićevo ( Serbian - Cyrillic Нинчићево ) in honor of the successful diplomatic border shift by the then Foreign Minister Momčilo Ninčić .

After the Second World War , the German residents were expelled from the village. They were followed by settlers from Bosnia and Herzegovina , who renamed the place Međa ( German  border ) due to its geographical location on the border with Romania .

The Roman Catholic Cemetery


The majority of the village's population belongs to the Serbian Orthodox Church . In the village is the Serbian Orthodox parish church of St. Archangels Michael and Gabriel , built from 1760 to 1770 .
