Central Park in Pozarevac, with monument of Prince Milos Obrenovic, who provided Serbian independence from Turkish Otoman empire in mid 19th century. Milosh made Pozarevac his summer residence, and practically, the capitol of new liberated Serbia. Serbia was a big empire from 13th to 15th century, during the Dinasty of Nemanjic. During the time of Serbian Czar Dushan "The Great", his empire reached the Aegean Sea. After defeat in Battle of Kosovo (1389), Serbian state fell under Turkish dominance and remained in slavery till 19th century. Rare historical documents from this "dark age" mention Pozarevac as the place where  the "Peace Treaty" among Austro - Hungarian and Turkish Empire was signed, after a war in second half of 18th century.
