This town was the center of many historical events during the 18th, 19th and 20th century. Visit to the town and to the memory complex devoted to him. A famous monument of Karađorđe lies in the center of the plateau, surrounded by the remains of Karađorđe fortress with three story towers built between 1811 and 1813; two residences, now museums and the Church of the Birth of the Virgin Mary with iconostasis and frescoes on the walls.
