History of the LSG

The origin and development of settlements on the territory of the city of Čačak is conditioned by the intensity of population from prehistory, when settlements, in which traces of material culture were found, are mentioned. Based on the findings on archaeological sites and cultural-historical monuments, it is believed that life in this area lasted continuously around 5,000 years BC until today. Special mention should be made of the necropolises under the mounds with objects from the Bronze and Iron Ages (from the 15th, 9th and 6th centuries BC) discovered at the Lugovi Bent site in Mojsinje. Objects from the Illyrian princely mounds in Atenica are also noteworthy, a site of world importance with exhibits dating from the 6th and 5th centuries BC. At the time of Roman domination in this part of Serbia, on the site of today’s city, there was a larger settlement, as evidenced by the Roman baths discovered in the city center.

In the period of the Serbian medieval state, the settlement is mentioned in the 13th century, as Gradac in Typikon of Studenica, which was written between 1207 and 1215. It was the capital of the prefect Stracimir, the brother of Stefan Nemanja, who is considered the founder of the city. The oldest mention of Čačak is in a court file from the Dubrovnik archives from 1408.

A new stage of development of Čačak was marked after 1815, when this city became the seat of the Čačak region.

The city developed even more strongly in the second half of the 19th century, when numerous residential, business and administrative buildings sprang up. According to the 2011 census, 115,337 inhabitants were registered in the cities territry, and 73,331 in the city itself. Today, Čačak is an economic, educational, cultural, tourist center and the seat of the Moravica region.
