Batočina

Short info - Batočina

Batočina is situated in the Šumadija District. It has found its place in the lower part of the Lepenica river basin and in the middle course of the river Velika Morava. It covers an area of 53 sq km and has over 5,000 inhabitants.

 

Batočina was first mentioned in the 1476 Turkish census. The Turks built it as a station on the way from Tsarigrad to Belgrade, on the Tsarigrad road, which still exists today. In the past, several battles between the Austrian and Turkish army took place there, the best known of which is the Battle at Batočina 1688.

 

Because of its geographical position, in 1825 Prince Miloš built there a residence, which later was converted into a school. From the times of Turkish domination originates the abandoned tavern, the so-called menzilhana, today known as mezulana.
