Trsic - Ethno Village

The small etno village of Trsic, 9 kilometers south of Loznica, is the birthplace of Vuk Stefanovic Karadzic, the 19th century language reformer who is considered the father of the modern Serbian language.

A portion of the village has been turned into an ethnographic park, centered on a recreation of the Karadzic family home.

Many authentic 19th century items are in the home, including a portrait of ‘Vuk' from 1816 painted by Pavle Djurakovic. In later years an amphitheater was erected to stage the many cultural events that take place in Trsic, among which the best known is 'Vukov sabor' dating since 1933.
