The center of the Pešter plateau, the place where everything starts and everything ends is Sjenica, the small town with 16000 citizens, situated in the center of one of the most expanded municipal area in Serbia. It was a place where the medieval caravans reposed their horses and fed them with hay on their way from Dubrovnik to Constantinople. Sometimes it was cut off from the world for a good deal of a year due to snow and large snow drifts, but today, it is well connected with cities on all four sides of the world.
Highway which connects the Ibar and Zlatibor highways connects Sjenica with the cities of Prijepolje, Novi Pazar and Nova Varoš, regional road with the cities of Ivanjica, Arilje and Užice, and partially paved road through the village Bare, connects it with the city of Bijelo Polje in Montenegro. The municipality of Sjenica has the population of 34000, 12 local communities and 103 settlements. Through the city and in its vicinity flow four rivers: the Uvac, the Vapa, the Jablanica and the Grabovica forming the Sjenica Lake. Sjenica is situated in a gentle valley, in the heart of the Pešter plateau, surrounded by mountains.
