In the beginning of the nineteenth century the Serbs started their fight against the Ottoman Empire and creation of their own state. In the years to come, the founding of institution and prerogatives of the state were the key tasks of every government. Serbian autonomy under the formal Ottoman rule was well used way of development of agriculture and trade of goods with neighbor state of Habsburg monarchy and Wallachia across the Danube. Serbian government was obligated to organize the control of the border and customs with neighbor states and the border was defined by two rivers: Sava and Danube. That was huge responsibility and the men who were put on that places were the ones of the biggest confidence of the Serbian prince and government since the customs was one of the biggest contribution to the government budget. By the insight of the paid customs you can analyze the development not only of the Serbian agriculture, but the agriculture of Habsburgs and Romanians, because these two states were the biggest, if not the only, importers of Serbian products and vice versa. Prussian and Austrian travelers, Otto von Pirch and Felix Kanitz, described their impressions of Serbia of that time
