(Serbian Cyrillic: Шумадија) is a geographical region in Serbia. The area is heavily covered with forests, hence the name (Šuma - forest). The city of Kragujevac is the center of the region, and the administrative center of the Šumadija District in Central Serbia.
Kragujevac, the main city of the Šumadija region, was the first capital of modern Serbia (1818–1839), and the first constitution in the Balkans was proclaimed in this city in 1835. Belgrade took the lead by becoming the seat of the throne in 1841.More on Šumadija and Kragujevac on wiki:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%A0umadijaen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kragujevac
