Stari Grad (Serbian Cyrillic: Стари град; meaning old town) is the remains of a fortress near the city of Užice, in central Serbia. It is an example of typical medieval Serbian architecture. Historians believe it was built between the 12th and 13th centuries to control movement along nearby roads, and the town of Užice. It is positioned on a large steep cliff, and surrounded on three sides by the river Đetinja. Today it consists of several ruined buildings, including the citadel and many of its surrounding walls. Stari Grad was declared Protected Monuments of Culture in 1983, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.
