Sevojno (Serbian Cyrillic: Севојно) is one of two city municipalities which constitute the city of Užice. As of 2011, it has 7,101 inhabitants.[1]

History[edit]

Formation[edit]

In February 2012, on a non-binding referendum, the citizens of Sevojno voted for the creation of a separate urban municipality within the City of Užice. However, residents of nearby villages of Zlakusa, Gorjani and Krvavci did not support the initiative.[2] Assembly of the City eventually supported formation of the municipality.

In 2013, the city municipality of Sevojno was established.[3] As of October 2013 the budget negotiations are under way.[4]

Economy[edit]

Sevojno is an industrial center of Užice, with aluminum mill "Impol Seval",[5] copper mill "Valjaonica bakra Sevojno"[6] and metal recycling facility "Inos-Sinma".[7]

Sports[edit]

Sevojno was the home to the former football club FK Sevojno. In 2010, it merged with FK Sloboda Užice.
