Photographer's Note

This is Paracin, small town in a central part of Serbia, in a vallley of a river Velika Morava. Here was settlement before Romans started their conquest of a Balkan peninsula. Though Paracin (roman name - Sarmates) was on a main road to Constantinopolis, here was a station of a roman army to change tired horses and to take a small pause before countinuing the long way.
In the middle ages it's name was Parakinov brod (in translation - The boat of Parakin). The presumption is that across the river - Morava or Crnica, which runs through Paracin was a boat for transporting the vehicles, people and horses. Long time after that here was a mercantile center. Today it is one of the most beautiful towns in a central part of Serbia, with a very rich history.
