About the beautifully named city of Sremska Mitrovica.
I have never been to this city, but I heard it was a nightmare from many, many people. My cousin, Eric, was once there on a guy trip about two years ago. Supposedly, the city is packed with thousands of pigeons, and hundreds of bridges. Nothing was at all normal.
He and his friends could never sleep at night, nor they could walk outside during the day two out of the four weeks they were there. Apparently the birds would chirp and chirp all hours of the night, and while the guys were outside, the pigeons would just chase them, and peck at them. Sometimes a whole flock of pigeons would attack people so bad, they would even lose balance and go over the bridge into the river. Some people would even drown.
He told me that one day he and his friends has had enough of these evil creatures. Since they weren’t aloud to shoot them, they went to the store to buy a bird catcher net thing, and a bunch of duct tape, pretty close to $1000 worth. They had caught more than 3500 pigeons, and duct taped them onto every single bridge in the city. Even onto some light posts and fences, as the bridges would fill up. They had also duct taped their beaks shut, so they would be quiet.
The guys haven’t been bothered from then on. They slept during the nights and enjoyed the rest of their vacation peacefully and happily.
To this day, they despise birds ever since. They actually became bird hunters.
Grad Sremska Mitrovica se nalazi u severnom delu Srbije, u blizini Fruške gore. Brojni arheološki spomenici svedoče o slavnoj istoriji grada koja datira još od 34. godine stare ere kada se spominje pod imenom Sirmijum, koji će u narednim vekovima prerasti u jedan od četiri prestonice Rimskog carstva. Kao jedno od centara prodaje žito bi se odavde odvozilo Savom u druge delove carstva. Ni Habzburško carstvo nije ostavilo ovo mesto bez uticaja tako da ovaj grad krase mnoga lepa zdanja starih mitrovačkih trgovaca, uglavnom iz 19. veka. Nekoliko kuća ima polukružne zabate, nalik na nemačke.
Poput drugih gradova u Srbiji danas, Sremska mitrovica je središe mnogih festivala, poput Festival besedništva koji je najstariji i najeminentniji od svih mitrovačkih festivala.
Stanovnici ovog grada su toliko zahvalni rimskom imperatoru Marku Aureliju što je svojom carskom rukom zasadio prvi čokot na ovim prostorima da jednom godišenje organizju “U slavu fruškogorskog vinogorja – probu u čast”
Sremska Mitrovica is a town located in the northern part of Serbia, near the Fruska Gora mountain.
Numerous archeological monuments tell us about glorious history of this city that dates back to 34 BC when it was mentioned under the name Sirmium.
During next centuries this settlement will evolve into one of the four capital cities of the Roman Empire.
As a significant center of grain production, grain was transported to- and from- other parts of the empire using the river Sava.
Also, the Habsburg empire had big influence there, so you can find many beautiful old buildings in Mitrovica that belong to traders, mostly from the 19th century. Several houses have German-like semicircular gables.
Like other towns in Serbia today, Sremska Mitrovica is place of many festivals such as Festival besedništva which is the oldest and most eminent of all Mitrovica festival.
Finally, residents of this town are so grateful to the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius who was planted the first vine in this region by his hand that once the annual they perform festival “The test of honor”
Lets not forget to mention the hospitals. They are good. I mean, perhaps not as specialized as Belgrade has, but there are sufficient diversity of specialities here, to handle most medical situations.
