Throughout history, Serbia has endured turbulent times — from the Serbian Revolution in the early 19th century to the Yugoslav Wars. Some Serbian cities still bear the scars of the nation’s history; in particular, the scars in the city of Kragujevac run deeper than others. On Oct. 21, 1941, about 2,800 Serbian males were brutally shot to death by Nazi German forces in what became known as the Kragujevac Massacre. Today, the Kragujevac October Memorial Park stands as a tribute to the lives that were lost. Modern-day Kragujevac has evolved into a lively city decked with a beautiful mix of Turkish and Vienna Secession architecture, interspersed with gardens and lakes. Nevertheless, you will be able to find well-preserved buildings from the past serving as museums. If you are planning a trip to Kragujevac and want to be close to all that the city has to offer, check out our list of the top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals In Kragujevac, Serbia.
