In the center of Serbian region Šumadija near a small town of Stalać South and Western Morava create the biggest Serbian river The Great Morava. Major part of its flow of 185km long is so curvy that sometimes in spring when Morava floods nearby lands, the river changes its flow and leaves small lakes called in Serbian „moravišta“. Romans called Morava „Margus“ whilst Serbian history Morava’s valley became heart of contemporary Serbian state in the 19th century (so-called Moravian Serbia). Many folklore songs and poetry are devoted to this river and glorify its fertility but also its archly flow.
Usual floods made settlements on Morava’s banks impossible, this is why towns Paraćin, Jagodina, Velika Plana are located along but not very close to this river. This is why relaxation on its banks lets you have a rest from people and enjoy peaceful fishing (mainly catfish and perch) in natural ambient.
