Full description

Prepare yourself for an exciting and unforgettable adventure set in Western Serbia, the most naturally vibrant region in the country. With a morning departure from Belgrade, this unforgettable day will start with a drive to wild and almost untouched nature, tasty cuisine, and friendly and hospitable people.

The route leads us to drive along the gorgeous Drina River where we will have a unique opportunity to see the world-famous attraction, “The House on the Drina” an isolated house made of logs on a river stone. The cherry on top will be the breathtaking view from the viewpoint positioned above the stunning landscape composed of high mountains and the Drina River itself.

Our first goal on the tour is a unique retro “Šargan 8 Railway”. The unique drive with the retro-train called “Nostalgy” will bring you back to times passed and let you fully enjoy the scenery and numerous tunnels. While you are enjoying amazing landscapes you will learn how this project was a huge victory of technology over nature, why it is named by a number, and how it became Europe’s most attractive narrow gauge railway.

After this “time travel” ride, something equally fabulous awaits us in the continuation of the tour. Film fans will be overjoyed to visit the breathtaking Ethno-village “Wooden Town” that famous director Emir Kusturica built. All the objects at this charming complex are made from natural materials, mostly wood. An especially interesting and glamorous event happening in this town is the film festival “Kustendorf”, a highly respected annual celebration of motion picture.

Drive through the picturesque Ovčar-Kablar Canyon that extends above the meanders of the Western Morava River. Enjoy more of the beautiful Western Serbia scenery before heading back to Belgrade.

Jovan was very attentive, nice and knowledgeable in everything he spoke about. He managed to be on schedule at all times while giving us maximum time at our destinations. He was also very caring and kind to the sick tourist in our van due to motion sickness. Be careful - windy and bumpy roads to the mountains can be very stressful to the body - take motion sickness tablets.

It was a long but nice trip. The nature is fantastic. The wooden village its a must and the guide drives you to sargan train and drina house. The road its pretty good despide the driver runs a lot and in some points we were bit scared and felt sick. But its a must. Make sure you bring some snaks and water so you can have in the car with you until lunch time in wooden city.
