Fig. No. 20. The sanctuary-dwelling from Lepenski-Vir with dwellings built on a trapezoidal precincts of burnt earth that has in the centre a rectangular fire place bordered by stone plates and spaces for hot ashes for storeing the coal and for lightning the fire. The settlement from Lepenski vir is considered to be the first (the eldest) religious-administrative centre of the European civilization. The building elements that had been used here were found in every settlement on both sides of the river. The settlement from Lepenski Vir was translated with its main dwellings. The waters of the lake drowned it and on a high plateau in front of it, in the same landscape, we an see one of the most interesting museums of the area.
