The villages of Trpinja, Bobota and Vera share a common legend about the origin of their names. According to the legend, the ancestors of today's inhabitants of villages, who settled at the time of the Great Serb Migrations under Arsenije III Čarnojević, were called Bobe. They were fleeing from the Ottoman Empire conquests of Balkan as they wanted to preserve their religious freedom.
This legendary religious commitment and orthodoxy was coined in the local phrase Bobe endured for the faith or originally in Serbian Bobe trpiše za veru. The family name of 'Bobe' was used as the basis for the name of Bobota, the word 'endured' (Serbian: trpiti) the name of Trpinja was created and from the word of faith (Serbian: vera) the name of Vera was coined.
Area of Vera and neighboring Trpinja and Bobota have the lowest elevation among the villages north of the Vuka River within their country.
Branch school of the Elementary School Bobota is located in Vera. Education at the local schools is implemented in Serbian language similarly to many other schools in eastern Croatia since the days of peaceful reintegration of the region completed in 1998. The first school in Vera was opened in 1789.
