Kruševac was founded in 1371. It is there that the prince Lazar gathered his army before being overcome and killed with the Bataille of Kosovo Polje in 1389. The site of its palate is marked by an enclosure containing the vestiges of the tower from where, according to the legend, the Milica queen learned the defeat from her husband by corbels which fled the battle field. Inside this enclosure, one can also see a church built under the reign of Stefan Dušan (1331-1355).
The Lazarica church, founded in 1380 by the prince Lazare and rebuilt at the 19th century by the prince Miloš Obrenović, has an architecture characteristic of the school moravienne, such as one finds it illustrated, for example, with the Monastère of Kalenić: radiant apse, single nave with Western barrel vault and narthex.
