Description

In the morning, your #destinationserbia tour guide will pick you up from your accommodation. We will set off for Mokra Gora village, acclaimed “The Best Tourism Village in the World” by World Tourism Organization. After approximately 45 minutes of driving, we will reach our first stop – Wooden Town (Drvengrad) village. This complex represents a proper small town, with all the amenities one town needs, and it looks like it has stood in the same place for centuries – except it hasn't! The whole place was built in the last 20 years but still represents the traditional architecture of Western Serbia and is a meeting place for artists and guests from all over the world, especially during the Kustendorf film and music festival in January. After visiting Wooden Town, we will proceed to the Shargan Eight railroad. This historic railway once formed part of the route connecting Belgrade to Dubrovnik on the Adriatic coast via Sarajevo. Passengers traversed the rugged Balkan landscapes aboard these vintage carriages, immersing themselves in the natural splendor of the region. While the railway was eventually overshadowed by modernization, a 15km stretch of the line has been meticulously restored and is now one of Serbia's premier tourist attractions. Here, we embark on a nostalgic journey aboard a century-old train, marveling at the pristine beauty of Shargan and Tara National Park. Prepare to be transported back in time as we traverse this engineering marvel, soaking in the unspoiled wilderness and rich history of the region. After ride, we resume our journey, heading towards the majestic slopes of Tara mountain. Renowned as one of Serbia's five national parks, Tara stands out for its untamed wilderness, offering a glimpse into nature's unspoiled beauty. Here, the landscape remains largely untouched by human intervention, boasting lush evergreen forests that cloak its slopes and provide sanctuary to a diverse array of wildlife. Tara's biodiversity is truly remarkable, with brown bears being among its most celebrated inhabitants. With a bit of luck, we might even catch a glimpse of these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat. Our exploration of Tara continues as we visit the Zmajevac viewpoint, Zaovine and Spajići lakes, and, of course, Banjska Stena, the most famous viewpoint on Tara mountain. We'll also have the opportunity to see Pančićeva Omorika, a type of spruce tree unique to Tara mountain. After visiting Mitrovac village, we'll descend to Perućac lake and the Drina river. Along the way, we'll visit Vrelo river – 365m long, one for every day of the year. Finally, we'll arrive at the world-famous House on the Rock, situated in the middle of the Drina river. The photo of this house was even featured as Photo of the Month in National Geographic magazine, bringing fame to this unique place. As our journey comes to an end, we'll take you back to your accommodation.
