One possible meaning of the name Prijepolje is “Prija’s field”; according to this theory Prija was the owner of the land before the town was built and polje(“field” in English). More probably theory is that the name originates from the location of Prijepolje. When caravans were passing through Prijepolje, the side from which they arrived was before the fields (in today’s Prijepolje, the neighborhoods of Ivanje and Velika Župa) and hence the name would mean “before the fields” (prije=before; polje=field). Coat of arms of Prijepolje also tells a lot about town.
Prijepolje is located at the confluence of the fast-flowing Lim and Mileševka rivers, along the road from Belgrade to the Adriatic sea and on the Belgrade – Bar railway. The Belgrade – Adriatic road is intersected here with the regional road Pljevlja – Prijepolje - Sjenica. This road runs along roughly the same route as the ancient Roman and Ottoman road, known as theDubrovnik road. At Bistrica, north of Prijepolje, there is a road leading towards Priboj, Višegradand Sarajevo. The town itself is surrounded by hills, like Pušina, Srijeteži, Gradina and Sokolica, which was making a special climate, for Prijepolje, but it lasted until the hydro plant “Potpeć” near Nova Varoš was built, and change it into a climate, regular for this cold part of Serbia.
Prijepolje is surrounded by forests. There are also a lot of beaches on the Lim. The one considered most attractive is in the centre of the town, under the bridge in Ivanje, and under the bridge in Petrovac.
