History and monuments

Kruševac was founded in 1371. [ [http://www.krusevac.org.yu/viewpage.php?page_id=6 СО Крушевац, званична презентација ] ] It was in Kruševac that the prominent Serbian noble, Lazar, assembled a Serb army to march against the Turks, at Kosovo, in 1389. The site of his palace is marked by a ruined enclosure containing a fragment of the tower of Queen Milica, whither, according to legend, tidings of the defeat were brought to her by crows from the battlefield. Within the enclosure stands a church, dating from the same time, with beautiful rose windows and with imperial peacocks, dragons and eagles sculptured on the walls. Several old Turkish houses were left at the beginning of the 20th century, besides an old Turkish fountain and bath.There is also a large monument dedicated to the Battle of Kosovo (Бој на Косову, "Boj na Kosovu"). As a part of the monument there is a statue of the famous Serbian poet and "gusle" player Filip Višnjić.
