The aim of this paper is to study the development of the identity of the City of Valjevo. The research has covered the historical development of the city as well as external influences on it. Among these are some of the larger cities located near Valjevo, such as Belgrade. The paper has emphasized what is immanent and characteristic of the city itself, as well as the manner in which Valjevo differs from other cities in its surroundings, recognizing some important historical aspects of its development, institutions and people. In the end, a forecast of further development (progress, reversal or stagnation) is made, including a review of the resources that the city and its surroundings possess.
