Where have I been?

11 Jun

I've been to Šumadija 🙂
Šumadija is a geographical region in Serbia. The area is heavily covered with forests, hence the name šuma which means forest.

During the 18th century, the forests of Šumadija were the refuge for the Hajduks that fought against Ottoman occupation. The first Serbian uprising in 1804 was led by national hero Karađorđe. The second Serbian uprising in 1815 was led by Miloš Obrenović who successfully repelled Turkish forces and, by 1830, gained full autonomy for Serbia. Because of Miloš Obrenović's leadership, Serbia regained its independence, after centuries under Ottoman occupation.

Between 1922 and 1929, one of the administrative units in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia was the Šumadijska Oblast. It roughly included territory of present-day Šumadija district with its administrative seat in Kragujevac, which is the seat of the modern district as well.
I like this song and I think it's appropriate for this post, because it's about Šumadija.

We went by car to the mountain Rudnik. The name translates literally to mine, as the mountain is rich in mining resources.
Rudnik is a mountain in central Serbia, near the town of Gornji Milanovac. Its highest peak Cvijićev vrh, named after geologist and biologist Jovan Cvijić, has an altitude of 1132 meters above sea level.

I made one video, hope you will enjoy :up:
