Being so close to, but far enough from the center of Belgrade, Obrenovac has managed to develop its own specific cultural production based on the foundations laid by Belgrade’s central institutions. The first cultural center here was founded as far back as in 1932. Today, various arts and sports events take place at the Cultural and Sports Center, which houses a theater-cinema, a chamber stage, an art gallery etc. Traditional cultural manifestations are organized throughout the year and include spring and summer art colonies in Zabran and Jozića Koliba, Festival of Children’s Folklore Ensembles and Drama Groups, Open Heart City, Obrenovac Summer, the festival of local craftsmanship and folk tradition International Meetings in Obrenovac etc.
