President Tito was a few times in Glogonjski Rit on its own during that period and each his visit was a huge event for the people of Glogonjski Rit. Here you can see an original photo taken on one of his visits to Glogonjski Rit.
Glogonjski Rit and its people were and are still proud nowdays of its history from that time, which is normally connected with much, much bigger places and towns. On top of that, as the most beautiful little place near Belgrade, Glogonjski Rit was visited at that time very often by many top national folk singers from former Yugoslavia, holding concerts for the people here.
Whatís the most special thing / fact about Glogonjski Rit ?
Well, during last century from 1950 - 1980 Glogonjski Rit was visited by many World Leaders / High delegations and by President of former Yugoslavia Tito on regular basis ! Imagine nowdays some well known World Leaders visit your place, from time to time ?
During the last century Glogonjski Rit was the most beautiful little place / estate near giant agrocultural company PKB, which was at that time among the 10 largest companies of its nature in Europe. President Tito used Glogonjski Rit as a typical labure estate, to show his World guests the cow farm and milk production, as well as beautiful estate itself. All that in order to show how people live quality life in comunist era and it may sound as a comunist propaganda but, the fact is . . people were living a quality life at that time !
Some of the World Top Leaders from that time who visited Glogonjski Rit :
Glogonjski Rit was built since 1946, and nowdays Glogonjski Rit still looks good but, not as good as it used to be during the last century. Many buildings are very old and some are damaged and it will take some time to repaire it. People still care about Glogonjski Rit but again, not as much as it used to be during the time when this place was the most beautiful place near Belgrade.
Our football club LEPUSNICA, was established in 1981. and competes in a local Belgradeís league nowdays. Even the name of the club was taken from the word LEPO - LEPUSKASTO ( BEAUTY - BEAUTIFUL ), as Glogonjski Rit used to be exactly that at that time.
Primary school in Glogonjski Rit was well refurbished in 2013, and itís over 60 years old.
Pupils attend this school up to 4 year and after that they have to travel to nearby Padinska Skela where is a big school, in order to complete primary education.
We try and we hope to re-build Glogonjski Rit sooner rather then later, in order to re-gain our -beautiful- status from last century.
Glogonjski Rit has 2 main local food shops, which are both in central part of the estate. There is also one pub and one newsagent shop plus, one nursery school & medical ambulance.
