Thanks to its central location, Jagodina isn’t only at the heart of the Pomoravlje District and Central Serbia, but also represents the central point of Serbia, which will win over every visitor with its well-intentioned and hard-working people, rich cultural heritage, strong tourism and gastronomic offer, attractions and orderliness.

Then visit the popular City Square, the Park of the Faculty of Education (the remains of the Arborarium of Sreten Adžić) or, during the summer months, Kneginja Milica Street, which becomes a pedestrian zone during the evenings. All of this will combine to make your stay unforgettable.
