Čačak

Short info - Čačak

Čačak lies in the Moravica District, in the middle part of Central Serbia. It covers an area of 636 sq km and has around 73,000 inhabitants. The Municipality of Čačak has 58 settlements.

The name of Čačak was recorded in the 14th century and the first inhabitants came to this area in the Neolithic Age. There are also archaeological sites dating from the Bronze Age, mostly grave mounds. In the 2nd century, this area was under Roman rule and in the 10th century it became part of Serbian Principality. In the First Serbian Uprising, Čačak was liberated in spring 1804, and after the Second Serbian Uprising it developed as a centre of nahia (smallest administrative union in the Ottoman Empire). At the beginning of the 19th century, after the Turks left, the city had only 900 inhabitants.

 

Considering the geographic position of Čačak and its surroundings (it is situated in the West Morava valley, which has a hilly hinterland), this area has a moderate continental climate up to an altitude of 700 m above sea level, and at higher altitudes, sub-mountain climate dominates.
