Krusevac

History:

"Long have Prince Lazar and Princess Milica searched where to build a new capitol. According to the folklore, they spend one night on a West Morava river’s hillside. That night Princess Milica dreamt of a vision, a premonition per se, of Stefan Nemanja, who told her to build the new capitol right there on that exact spot where they fell to their peaceful slumber. And so it was."
