Research on the Serbian cemetery in Szentendre

After the Great Migration under the Patriarch Arsenije III Čarnojević, the Serbs massively inhabited the areas of then Kingdom of Hungary, and their principal destination was almost desolate Szentendre bank in today's Hungary. Compared to other settlements, Serbs were the majority of population in this small town, while the nearby Serbian villages Pomaz, Kalaz and Čobanac constituted densely populated ethnic backing. During the entire century of enlightenment, Szentendre received the appearance and ethnic composition of a Serbian town. The settlers were predominantly from Kosovo and Metohija, but from other desolate and by war devastated regions as well (Aegean Macedonia, Pozarevac, Ćiprovac, etc.). Trades man and merchants excelled among them, and a number of the inhabitants of Szentendre dealt with agriculture, predominantly viticulture. Trades and commerce developed fast and reached its peak in the mid 18th century, and favorable economic situation enabled the development of the entire society regarding all spheres of life (school, church, guilds). Serbian town cemetery in the center of Szentendre, stands for the record on then life of Serbian civil social class and its culture and also the destiny of its ancestors.
