Besides that it was capital of Middle Ages Montenegrin rulers, Crnojević dinasty, Obod have written its place in history books as a home of printing house that printed first Cyrillic book on South Slavic countries.
Djuradj Crnojević founded the famous Obod printing house (Crnojević printing house) back in 1493. and under the supervision of the hieromonk Makarije already in the first days of the following year, January 4th 1494, the book Oktoih prvolasnik was completed , only 38 years after Gutenberg. In addition to this book, with the help of Makarije and his seven assistants, four more books saw the light of day – Oktoih petoglasnik, Pslatir s posledovanjem, Trebnik and Četvorojevandjelje.
Due to the war, with the departure of Djuradj Crnojević and Makarije to Italy, the printing house ceased to operate in 1496.
