Short info - Smederevo

Smederevo is a city and municipality on the right bank of Danube, and administrative centre of Podunavlje District. It has a surface of 482 km2 and a population of about 62,000.


Smederevo was first mentioned in 1019, in a charter of the Byzantine emperor Basil II. It was also mentioned in a charter of Prince Lazar from 1381, but for this town was important 14th century, when Serbian state retreats to the north, faced with Turkish attacks. After 1430, in which Smederevo Fortress was built, Smederevo became the new Serbian capital.



There are few theories about origin of the name Smederevo.

1. Italian historian Antonio Bonfini believes that the name comes from St. Andrew.
2. Some believe that the name is a compound of two words – smet, deep snow, and drvo, wood – because of big oak forests on this territory.
3. Some think that Smedervo comes from the medieval Serbian man’s name Smender.
4. Many authors consider that the name comes from the Iranian word Semender, which means “the last door”. A town by the Caspian Sea was called like that, and numerous inhabitants of Khazar empery, who fled before the invaders, came to Serbian regions and named settlements that they have found there after their previous towns.
