Place

3rd Balkan High Speed Telegraphy Championship will take place in Svilajnac, Serbia.

Svilajnac is a mid-size town and municipality in central Serbia, located 100 km south-east of Belgrade on the banks of the river Resava and bordering the river Morava. Its name stems from the word "silk" in Serbian.

Svilajnac was first mentioned in Turkish records in 1467 as a village of a hundred households. The village, and later town, gained prominence through its silk production, from which it derives its name. Location at the crossroads between north-east, south-east and western Serbia helped it flourish as a trading center, where silk, wool and livestock were traded.
