Full description

This tour starts with pickup from your accommodation and then heads toward Western Serbia. After a 2.5-hour ride, you’ll reach “The House on the Drina,” an isolated house made of logs on a river stone. Then, depart on the famous Sargan 8 scenic train. During your ride, pass and stop at several viewpoints, where you can see fabulous views over Mokra Gora.   After an almost 2.5-hour ride, return to the station and continue your journey to the nearby Mećavnik, or Drvengrad (Wooden City). The famous director Emir Kusturica, a two-time Palme D'Or award winner at the Cannes Film Festival, built it during the shooting of his film, Life is a Miracle. After a meal, head back to Belgrade, arriving in the late afternoon.

Sargan 8 scenic train only operates from April 1st to October 31st each year, you'll not be able to take the train at other times.

The trip was great and the guide/driver was super great! I had a very nice day. The guide was very passionate about explaining everything. I was the only person on the tour, but the guide explained everything very nicely and took a lot of my pictures. Thank you Llir for showing me around.

Please do not book this tour as it was a terrible experience. It is just a taxi service at an exorbitant price, our driver didn’t know anything, didn’t explain anything and neither he spoke good English. To make it worse, they didn’t book our sargan 8 railway ticket and only when we reached there we got to know it, they didn’t bother to inform. When we were scheduled to do to Drvengrad, the driver just drove off the entrance and said this is it without letting us even get off the car. Overall the worse experience ever.
