Loznica

Short info - Loznica

Loznica is situated in West Serbia. The seat of the Mačva District is situated 142 m above sea level, at the foot of the mountain Gučevo. It covers an area of 612 sq km and has about 20,000 inhabitants. The small river Štira runs through Loznica, which is, together with its suburbs, the biggest city of the whole Podrinje (Drina Valley) and an important regional centre, as well.

 

Numerous archaeological finds speak of the population in this area. It was inhabited by the Illyrians, and the oldest settlement Ad Drinum comes from Roman times. The settlement once located at the place of present Loznica was first mentioned at the beginning of the 14th century, in the King Milutin’s Charter. As an urban settlement it was founded in 1834.

 

It is assumed that the name Loznica comes from the word “lozica” (meaning vine), because of the numerous vineyards that existed in this area.
