The Secrets of Djetinja

2012

"Đetinja is a river in western Serbia, a 75 km long natural but shorter headstream of the Zapadna Morava River."
In the background you can see a hint of three interesting structures. The first one is an old hydroelectric power plant "Under the Town", built in 1900 and designed according to Nikola Tesla's principles. It was one of the first power plants in Europe. The plant building and its immediate surroundings were declared as cultural heritage of great importance. On the square in front of the building, there is an open summer stage, which is used for various cultural events.
The second curiosity is an almost 100 years old iron railway bridge. Today it mainly serves as a platform for an annual diving competition. The bridge is 12 meters tall and the river depth underneath the bridge is 4 meters.
The third interesting building is a medieval town or "Stari grad". "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."
