Kolasin

Kolašin, is a town in northern Montenegro. It has a population of 2,989 . Kolašin is the centre of Kolašin Municipality and unofficial centre of Morača region, named after Morača River.EtymologyThe origin and the meaning of the word Kolašin is still unknown although there is a whole range of linguistic hypotheses. According to one version there was a vojvoda ("duke") named Kolašin who founded the settlement of Kolašin. Possibly the village of Kolašin from Sultan's Decree was the same Kolašin found in oral tradition and the settlement of vojvoda Kolašin.HistoryOttoman periodKolašin, fortress-settlement, was raised by the Turks in the middle of the 17th century in the namesake village in Nikšić district . The village of Kolašin was first mentioned in the Sultan's Decree in 1565, by which the deceased Grand Duke Miloš was replaced by his son Todor. The Turkish town was named after the former village of Kolašin.In 1651, Patriarch Gavrilo assigned Eparch of Zahumsko, the Eparchy of Nikšić, Plana, the Kolašinovićevs and the Morača to Basil of Ostrog. This document also, like the one from 1667, shows that the Orthodox Christian population of this region called the Kolašinovići, was organized in a recognized and respected tribal community of the Kolašinovićs. The historical science and sources recognize the surname Kolašinović. By all odds, the name was also derived, same as the name of the region, fortress - settlement and the tribe from the same source—the village of Kolašin.
