Kingtown - Queen of Kraljevo

Dear Friends

here you can see photos of Queen of Ibar in Kraljevo, Serbia.
One of the most interesting restaurants with national food
and drink, good local music and unique entertainment.


In the heart of Sumadija, "the city of the kings" is a charming town of 1200.000 population where it is agreeable to stay. Three hours on the road away from the capital, Kraljevo has been installed comfortably on thanks of Morava and emanates an atmosphere of joy.

In Middle Ages the environment of Kraljevo were developing at the end of the XII century the monastery of Studenica had been erected by Stefan Nemanja, the founder of the dynasty of Nemanjics. At the beginning of 1217 there was a king of Serbia for the first time in the history of this state. To assure the control over this central territory, Nemanjics had constructed the fortress of Maglic on the Ibar.

Monastery of Zica. Recognizable by its vive red colour, the monastery has a particular importance for the history of the Serbian nation. Zica is since its erection in 1219 the residence of the Serbian diocese here St. Sava, the first Serbian archbishop had crowned his brother King Stefan. Later on the sons of Stefan Radoslav and Vladislav had been crowned here. But at the end of XIII century the patriarchy had been moved to Pec, then the Ottomans had burnt the church many a time. The burnt out arch at the entrance could still be seen. The church belongs to the architecture school of Raska recognisable by its rectangular design and by its square tower.

Also, every year there is a happenning on the water, Rafting tour through the Ibar valley starting from Maglic, medieval castle and arriving to Kraljevo.
