Ćuprija is a town and administrative district in Serbia, at 43.93° North, 21.38° East. Ćuprija is part of Pomoravlje District in Serbia. The population of the town is 19,380, while municipality has 30,020 inhabitants.HistoryThe Romans founded the town as a fort Horreum Margi on the road from Constantinople to Rome, where it crosses the river now known as Velika Morava. It served as a Roman military base, had a shield factory and gained the status of municipium before 224AD. In 505, the Romans were defeated by Goths and Huns under Mundo, a descendant of Attila the Hun.Under Slavic rule, it became known as Ravno, since it is in a flat river valley. Some local names recall the major clash in autumn 1191 between the Serbs and the Byzantines .In the 15th century, Ćuprija became part of Ottoman Empire. After conquering this settlement, the Turks built a bridge or "köprü" in Turkish - hence the name of the town.Shortly after the First Serbian Uprising began, in 1805 one of the first and most important battles was won by Ivankovac, near Ćuprija. Serbian uprisers under the leadership of dukes Milenko Stojković, Petar Dobrnjac, and Stevan Sinđelić defeated a Turkish army which led to further spreading of the Uprising through all of Belgrade Pashaluk. Four years after that, in 1809, Ćuprija Elementary school was founded.
