Economy[edit]

The economy is not much developed. Being an agricultural area, Barajevo has a mill, large orchard farm, a veterinarian station and the hunting & forestry company of Lipovička šuma. Wheat, barley, oats and corn are being grown. Industry is based on the small construction and electronic companies and the ball bearing factory.

Barajevo is outside major roads, but it is located on the Belgrade-Bar railway. The settlement itself was further away, but as it grew, it reached the railway.

Culture and tradition[edit]

Cultural festival, the Barlet, (Barajevo summer) is held annually. Artificial lake 'Duboki potok' (Cyrillic: Дубоки поток; Deep brook) is located near the Barajevo, with the large weekend-settlement.

First mention of the name Barajevo is from the 16th century. The popular story that the settlement got its name from the multitude of springs in this area [Serbian: bara je ovo (this is a pond)] is probably not true.

Also, the reality TV show The Farm is captured in the village of Lisović.[4]
