Photographer's Note

Maglič is 13th-century fortress about 20 km south of Kraljevo. It’s located atop a hill around which the Ibar river makes a sharp curve, about a 100 m above the river. Once upon a time only one caravan road connected the Morava valley and Kosovo Polje.

Observed from below it looks almost unreachable, like a giant crown of stone atop a huge rock. It is only one of 200 medieval Serbian cities but it has an undeniable uniqueness to it. This castle survived countless wars and uprisings, and for that it can thank its inaccessibility. And the fog. For you see, interestingly enough, its name means “The Foggy One” from the Serbian word “magla”, meaning fog.
