. Near Vlasotince, remains of the ancient volcanic eruptions are quite visible.

ECONOMY

The largest center of the whole region is the town of Vlasotince
Vlasotince
, but in general, the area is one of the least developed in Serbia, very poor and extremely depopulating. For example, population of Crna Trava municipality decreased from around 14,000 in 1953 to mere 2,500 in 2002. Accordingly, density also plunged, from 43 per km² in 1953 to only 8 per km² in 2002.

A circular freeway connects the valleys of the Vlasina
Vlasina
and Južna Morava rivers.

In 2005 Hellenic Bottling Co., a subsidiary of The Coca Cola Company, bought the local water factory ("Rosa" is a trademark for this water) which is located close to the Vlasina
Vlasina
source thus causing potests of the local environmentalists. Activists from the "Eco base South" (Eko baza Jug) were afraid of overexploitation drying out the sources of the river.
