Ethnic structure (2002 census)

Jakovo is located in the western, finished section of the uncompleted Belgrade beltway and also on the Belgrade's internal freight railway Batajnica-Surčin-Ostružnica-Železnik-Resnik which in this section generally follows the route of the beltway.

One of the most famous Syrmian monasteries, Fenek, is located just outside the settlement, on the road to Boljevci. A riding school is also situated on the main road leading from Jakovo.


Stremen (Cyrillic: Стремен) is the only salaš, secluded ranch-type farms quite common in Vojvodina and Hungary, on the territory of Belgrade. [4] It is location of the traditional horse racing fair Sremački preskok. Curiosity of the salaš is the German fiacre for transportation of 15 passengers, popularly called konjobus (horsebus). Stremen is 20 kilometers away from downtown Belgrade, but since 2008 it is also accessible via tourist boats which connect Novi Beograd's Block 45 and settlements in the municipality of Surčin through canals.
