We were born in Sremska Mitrovica, the town on the left bank of river Sava. Although it is a small town 70 km far from Belgrade, it has rich ancient history. The ancient name of Sremska Mitrovica was Sirmium and this glorious city was one of the four capitols of the great Roman Empire during the time of tetrarchy. Many Roman Emperors were born in or in close vicinity of Sirmium.

There are numerous excavations of the ancient city of Sirmium visited by many tourists. Wherever you try to dig in Sremska Mitrovica you will find the remaining of the glorious city. Below you can see the center of Sremska Mitrovica and excavations near the city core.

While Stevan spent all of his childhood in Sremska Mitrovica, Sanja spent all of her childhood in Šid, a small town 40 km far from Mitrovica, just at the border with Croatia. Šid attracted attention thanks to the famous painter Sava Šumanović, who lived and created in Šid for many years. Located at the slopes of Fruška Gora (latin Alma Mons), Šid is surrounded with beautiful locations in nature perfect for rest and battery recharge :)

Geographically and administratively, both Sremska Mitrovica and Šid belong to Srem district, which is part of the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina. Srem (or Syrmia) is most famous by food products (dried meat), rakia, wine and tambourine music.
