The Podunavlje district is in the central part of Serbia and covers a small area of 1,248km2 in three municipalities: Smederevo (main), Smederevo Palanka and Velika Plana. The name is derived from the Danube River which passes though the district.
In the 14th century, Smederevo was the capital of Serbia, and the remains of the ruler’s fortress still stand today.
The only steel mill in Serbia is seated in Smederevo but also a number of construction, energy and transportation companies.
A famous mineral water spring containing natural selenium is at Smaderevska Palanka, which is another important industrial town with several of the nations’ largest corporations.
The valley of the river Danube is of a rich soil for fruits and vegetables.
