Kerska Church – The Church of Saint Rokus was built in 1896, in Neo-Gothic style.
Ker village is the south part of the city, a high balk above the old Gat Lake and the low dale of Mlaka. The name was awarded, most likely, after the Ker tribe that has taken up its place here at the time when the Hungarians came to these parts. Renewing the donation of his mother, King Bela III granted Ker to the Hospitaller crusaders from Székesfehérvár, in 1113.

Kolevka – Subotica is a Children and Youth Centre, located at 6, Jaša Ignjatović Street. Taking care of children without parents in Subotica didn’t begin with the opening of the Orphanage in 1903, as we are likely to guess. The official Orphanage has been founded in 1900, however town councilors and women’s associations had been trying to resolve this issue for decades before that. Kolevka-Children and Youth Centre marks May 1st as its day of foundation, a date when the Orphanage in Subotica became independent from Budapest State Orphanage. A new chapter for this Centre begins in the hard post-war times, when the number of abandoned children and orphans rose dramatically. At that time, the centre was given the name Kolevka. Presently, mostly nurses work at Kolevka. The Centre keeps its doors open for everyone who wishes to visit the children or take them home into their family over the weekend, as part of attempts to make their lives at the Centre to be like a life in a real family.
Korzo the main city promenade. Beautiful facades, mainly depicing the flamboyant style of Hungarian art nouveau, nowadays reconstructed and in full splendor. Subotica’s Korzo is the cultural and business centre of the city; at one end, one finds the Public Theater; at the other, the Children’s Theater with banks, cafés, shops in between and with trees all the way through.
