Pearls of W. Serbia in 3 days: Uvac, Zlatibor & Mokra Gora

4. Pearls of W. Serbia in 3 days: Uvac, Zlatibor & Mokra Gora

Day 1: Our first stop is a world-famous attraction, “The House on Drina” – an isolated house made of logs on a river stone. After a photo stop and refreshments, we will continue our trip to the famous Šargan Eight. A unique narrow-gauge railway nowadays serves only for amusement. We will pass and stop at several viewpoints during our ride, from which one can see fabulous views over Mokra Gora. Authentic cars with wooden seats, wood-burning stoves, and characteristic rattling sounds will take us back to 1925 when this railway was put into operation. The next stop is Wooden Town. The famous director Emir Kusturica (two times Palme d’Or in Cannes winner) decided to build it during the shooting of his film “Life is a Miracle.” He chose to convey ruined wooden chalets from the mountain’s slopes, restore them, and form a new settlement. Overnight: Zlatibor Day 2: Breakfast. After only one hour of driving from Zlatibor, we’ll find ourselves in the pure beauty of Uvac Canyon. For centuries, the Uvac River has been making its way through the mountains, leaving deep meanders and creating caves that attract many tourists. If we’re lucky, we’ll get a chance to see the mighty griffon vulture, whose population in Uvac is the largest in Europe. The bird’s wingspan is about 3 m, and it can weigh up to 11 kg, thus making it the largest bird in Serbia. We will take a boat trip and follow the river as it twists and turns through the impressive landscape. We’ll not leave the Reserve before taking some fantastic photos from the viewpoints overlooking the canyon. Important note 1: If you want to see the viewpoints, there are around 25 minutes of hiking uphill. So, it’s not recommended for older, overweight, or people with any kind of walking disabilities. Another option is to sit in the boat while the rest of the group returns from the photo session at the viewpoints. Important note 2: In case of bad weather or insufficient water level for the cruise to be conducted, we’ll replace the cruise with a jeep ride to the beautiful viewpoints. Overnight: Zlatibor Day 3: After breakfast, we’ll visit Sirogojno, a village famous for its ethnological museum and “Sirogojno sweaters” made of raw wool. You will see the Ethnological exposition of the open-air museum known as the Old Village. Following, we will visit Stopica Cave. Though it’s not lavish with speleothems, it does have some unique geological features. This limestone cave with a massive entrance is home to several “siga,” or limestone tubs of different sizes and depths. They are some of the largest of their kind, with some as deep as seven meters (23 feet). The next site for today is Gostilje Waterfall. This popular escape and picnic spot on the outskirts of Zlatibor is dominated by a 20m-high waterfall that morphs into a series of scenic miniature cascades accessed by steps and footbridges. Return to Belgrade, where we will arrive late in the afternoon. Drop offs. End of the tour.
