Name and history

In Serbian, the town is known as Kula (Кула); in Rusyn as Кула, in Hungarian as Kula, in German as Wolfsburg, and in Turkish as Kula.

The name Kula means "tower" in Turkish. In the 16th-17th century, a tower with Ottoman military garrison existed at this location, hence the name of the town. During Ottoman rule, the settlement was populated by ethnic Serbs.

From the end of the 17th century, Kula belonged to the Habsburg Monarchy. In 1733, the population of the settlement numbered 251 houses and its inhabitants were Serbs. Hungarians started to settle there in 1740 and Germans in 1780-1785. At the beginning of the 20th century, the population of Kula was approximately 9,000 Germans, Hungarians and Serbs. After 1918, the settlement was part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. The town was occupied by Hungary between 1941-1944 during World War II. After the war, the town returned to being part of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina under Serbia within Yugoslavia. The town remained under Serbian control through the breakup of Yugoslavia, and today lies within the Republic of Serbia.
