On this tour you are going to visit Manasija monastery - also known as Resava, a Serbian Orthodox monastery near Despotovac town, founded by Despot Stefan Lazarevic between 1406 and 1418. The church is dedicated to the Holy Trinity, it is one of the most significant monuments of medieval Serbian culture and it belongs to the "Morava school". The Resava cave, one of the most beautiful natural treasures of Serbia, is 4.5 km long. However, only 2,830 meters of the cave have been researched, and visitors can go as long as 800 meters deep into it. The Resava is one of the oldest caves in the country (around 80 million years old). The temperature in it is constantly around 7°C, while the air humidity varies from 80 to 100%. The interior of the cave has numerous and varied halls, canals, galleries, columns, stalactites, stalagmites, natural drape like formations and petrified waterfalls. Because of its riches and varied colors, the Resava Cave earned an attribute “the beauty from the Resava”. In Lisine, the 25-metre high "Veliki buk" waterfall, Serbia’s most visited waterfall, was long considered the highest waterfall in the country, until the waterfalls on Stara Planina and Kopaonik were stumbled across. In the nearby restaurants run by local farmers you can taste fresh trout or some grilled meat specialties from this region. Also, we can't wait for you to try their bread! The Krupaj springs are one of the natural curiosities and features of this region. With its splendid beauty, these springs form a lake on its surface and irresistibly lure an unwary traveler to the depths of the forests, to its water and crispy mountain air. The thermal spring water complete with health properties mixed with the cold spring water from the Krupaj springs, seem to complete the picture of this almost mythical scenery. Close by there is a strong thermal spring with water temperature of 26.50C, and is protected as a natural heritage of national importance.

Excursion by car in the peripheral area of Belgrade, with a visit to a beautiful monastery, natural caves and a waterfall with a stop for lunch. Excellent guide in English, kind, helpful and passionate. Absolutely recommended to see something more than just the center of Belgrade.

Fun trip as described. What really made it extra special was the guide Jelena and the driver Renko. The drive can get a bit long though (2h) to the first site and then back from the last. The monastery was the best thing. Jelena is knowledgeable and friendly.

Everything's fine. I have done 4 tours with this operator and I consider it excellent. The tour is very interesting and combines culture and nature. The entrance system to the Resava caves needs to be improved but it does not depend on the operator.

This is a very relaxed, interesting tour. Mix of nature and old monastery. Iva was a great in telling us stories of the Serbian history and details on how cave. All together a well organized trip from the pick up to drop off.

Great excursion! Small group, good guide and comfortable accompaniment to all sights.
