Novi Pazar

Novi Pazar is a city located in the Raška District of western Serbia. As of the 2011 census, the urban area has 66,527 inhabitants, while the city administrative area has 100,410 inhabitants.Novi Pazar is the cultural center of the Bosniaks in Serbia and the historical region of Sandžak. A multicultural area of Muslims and Orthodox Christians, many monuments of both religions, like the Altun-Alem Mosque and the Church of St. Apostles Peter and Paul, are found in the region.NameDuring the 14th century under the old Serbian fortress of Stari Ras, an important market-place named Trgovište started to develop. By the middle of the 15th century, in the time of the final Ottoman Empire conquest of Old Serbia, another market-place was developing some 11 km to the east. The older place became known as Staro Trgovište (Old Trgovište, Eski Pazar) and the younger as Novo Trgovište (New Trgovište, Yeni Pazar). The latter developed into the modern city of Novi Pazar.The name of Novi Pazar (meaning "new marketplace") was thus derived from the Serbian name Novo Trgovište, via the Turkish name Yeni Pazar, which is itself derived from bazaar (, meaning "place of prices"). It is still known as Yeni Pazar in modern-day Turkey.
